627 Possible Causes for Unilateral Blindness

  • Occlusion of the Ophthalmic Artery

    Unilateral blindness occurring during anaesthesia for neurosurgical operations. AMA Arch Ophthalmol 1954; 52: 819-30. 6.[] , and in case of unilateral involvement, to save the other eye.[] This case highlights the importance of early diagnosis and prompt treatment of giant cell arteritis in order to prevent the blinding complications like ophthalmic artery occlusion[]

  • Glaucoma

    Classic glaucoma treatment focuses on intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction. Better knowledge of the pathogenesis of the disease has opened up new therapeutical approaches. Whereas most of these new avenues of treatment are still in the experimental phase, others, such as magnesium, gingko, salt and[…][]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    We present three patients with a clinical course and cerebrospinal fluid findings consistent with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). Extensive and repeated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations showed only diffuse abnormality in brain and spinal cord, but no focal lesions. We propose[…][]

  • Carotid Embolism

    We herein present a case of an internal carotid artery embolism associated with a hidden internal carotid artery aneurysm. The aneurysm was visualized during successful endovascular treatment of the carotid embolism. In retrospect, the aneurysm was at risk of rupture during the procedure. In the endovascular[…][]

  • Carotid Artery Occlusion

    Carotid angioplasty with stenting (CAS) is becoming accepted as an effective and reliable treatment option for severe carotid artery stenosis. However, it is rarely applied for carotid occlusion, especially in its chronic stage. We report our experience of CAS for chronic internal carotid artery occlusion[…][]

  • Carotid Cavernous Sinus Fistula

    German, Triad of unilateral blindness, orbital fractures and massive epistaxis after head injury. J. Neurosurg. 18 (1961), 837–840. PubMed Google Scholar McCormick, W.[]

  • Cataract

    Abstract Purpose or review To conduct a concise review of primary research articles over the preceding year on the subject of the consequences of waiting for cataract surgery. Recent findings Waiting for cataract surgery beyond 6 months may result in increasing vision loss, decrease in quality life, loss of[…][]

  • Temporal Arteritis

    blindness; shares many of the symptoms of polymyalgia rheumatica Applies To Cranial arteritis Horton's disease Temporal arteritis ICD-9-CM Volume 2 Index entries containing[] blindness.[] Visual symptoms of diplopia, blurred vision, or amaurosis fugax may antedate development of sudden unilateral blindness.[]

  • Optic Nerve Infarction

    Unilateral blindness occurring during anesthesia for neurosurgical operations. AMA Arch Ophthalmol 1954;52:819–30.[] In addition, examination of the pupils may not show any difference in size when both the eyes are open. · Unilateral blindness due to optic nerve injury is often missed on[] Loss of vision may be unilateral but is often bilateral, ranging from irreversible total blindness to mild transient deficits.[]
