Retinal Artery Occlusion ("eye stroke")
A retinal artery occlusion is the equivalent of a “stroke in the eye.” It occurs when the blood vessels that supply nutrients and oxygen to the retina close off. When this occurs in the main artery supplying blood to the retina, it is called a central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO). It is considered an ocular emergency, and in many cases, this event leads to permanent vision loss.
