Central retinal artery occlusion - rethinking retinal survival time

Published inBMC Ophthalmology, vol. 18, no. 1, 101
Publication date2018

The critical time from onset of complete occlusion of the central retinal artery (CRA) to functionally significant inner retinal infarction represents a window of opportunity for treatment and also has medical-legal implications, particularly when central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) complicates therapeutic interventions. Here, we review the evidence for time to infarction from complete CRAO and discuss the implications of our findings.
