Artery Occlusion

  • Sudden, painless and complete or partial loss of vision in one eye
  • Occurs when a major blood vessel behind the eye becomes blocked. (much like a stroke confined to the eye)
  • Medical conditions such as diabetes, raised blood pressure and smoking increase the risk
  • Note: If sudden loss of vision occurs get to an ophthalmologist as soon as possible. Sometimes the vision loss is reversible but permanent defects in the vision often remain
