Abstract

Purpose of review: To summarize general concepts of ocular ischemic syndrome (OIS), and present current scientific developments in delineating the pathogenesis and treatment of this disorder. Recent findings: Recent studies suggest that OIS is associated with a significant risk of cerebrovascular, ocular, and systemic morbidity. OIS is a serious blinding condition that occurs in the setting of carotid artery occlusion. Restoration of arterial perfusion and early diagnosis are critical for preserving visual function and reducing the risk of devastating ocular complications.
