Sudden painless loss of vision

  • Sudden loss of vision is alarming to both the patient and the clinician alike.

  • sudden & transient visual loss or obstruction may simply be a symptom of dry eye or may herald the onset of irreversible visual loss or stroke.


Causes of sudden loss of vision

Causes of sudden loss of vision

  • Central Retinal artery occlusion

  • Vitreous hemorrhage

  • Retinal detachment

  • Central Retinal vein occlusion

  • Optic neuritis

  • Methyl alcohol amblypia


Retinal artery occlusion

Retinal artery occlusion

Etiology-

  • more common in patients suffering from hypertension.

  • Thrombosis

  • Embolism

  • Retinal artritis

  • Angiospasm


Central retinal artery occlusion

Central retinal artery occlusion

Clinical Features -

  • More common in male

  • Usually unilatral,rarely bilateral

  • It is due to obstruction at the level of lamina cribriosa.


Sudden painless loss of vision

Symptom –

Painless sudden loss of vision


Sudden painless loss of vision

Signs-

  • Direct pupilary reflex is absent.

  • Retinal artery markly narrow.

  • Retinal vein look normal.

  • Retina become milky white.

  • Chery red spot (central part of macular area)

  • Blood coloum is segmented.


Ergs of crao

ERGs of CRAO


Branch retinal artery occlusion

branch retinal artery occlusion

  • Usually occurs following lodgment of embolus at bifercation.

  • Retina distal to occlusion become odematous.

  • Later on permanent sectorial visual field defect.


Sudden painless loss of vision

Management–

treatment is unsatisfactory as retinal tissue can’t survive ischemia more than few hours.

Emergency treatment-

  • Immediate lowering of intraocular pressure

    by IV Mannitol

    intermittent occular massage

    paracentesis of anterior chamber


Sudden painless loss of vision

  • Vasodilator & inhalation of mixture of 5% carbon-di-oxide & 95% of water.

    relive angiospasm

  • Anticoagulant

  • IV steroids


Sudden painless loss of vision

Complication-

neovascular glaucoma with incidence varying from 1% to 5%.


Retinal vein occlusion

Retinal vein occlusion

Etiology -

  • More common than artery occlusion

  • Typically affects elderly patients in 6th or 7th decade in life

  • Pressure on the vein by sclerotic retinal artery

  • Hyperviscocity of blood as in polycythemia

  • Periphlebitis retinae(central or peripheral)


Sudden painless loss of vision

  • Raised intraocular pressure,more common in primary open angle glaucoma

  • Local cause-

    orbital cellulitis

    facial erysipelas

    cavernous sinus thrombosis


Central retinal vein occlusion

Central retinal vein occlusion

  • Non ischemic

  • most common clinical variety

  • Characterised by mild to moderate visual loss.

    Fundus examination-

    In early stage-

  • mild venous congesion

  • Tortusity

  • Few superficial flame shaped haemorrhage more in periphery than posterior.


Sudden painless loss of vision

  • Mild papillodema

  • Mild macular odema

    In later stage-

  • Sheathing arround main vein

  • Few cilioretinal collatrals around disc

  • Retinal haemorrhage partly absorbed

  • Macula shows chronic cystoid odema.


Sudden painless loss of vision

Treatment-

  • Usually not required

  • Condition resolve with almost normal vision in about 50% cases.

  • No treatment is effective for chronic cystoid macular odema

  • Course of oral steroids 8-12 weeks may be effective.


Sudden painless loss of vision

  • Ischemic-

    Refers to acute complete occlusion of central retinal vein

    Characterised by marked Sudden loss of vision


Sudden painless loss of vision

Fundus examination-

in early stage-

  • Massive engorgement

  • Congestion

  • Tortusity of veins

  • Massive retinal haemorrhage

  • Papilloedema

  • Macular area oedematous


Sudden painless loss of vision

in later stage-

  • Sheathing around vein & collatrals seen around disc

  • Neovascularisation at disc

  • Macula-marked pigmentary change

  • Chronic cystoid oedema


Difference between ischemic from non ischemic

Difference between ischemic from non ischemic

  • Presence of relative afferent pupillary defect

  • Visual field defect

  • Reduced amplitude of b-wave of ERG.


Sudden painless loss of vision

Complication-

  • Rubiosis iridis

  • Neovascular glaucoma in more than 50% cases within 3 months

  • Few develops vitreous hemorrhage


Sudden painless loss of vision

Treatment-

  • Panretinal photocoagulation

  • Cryo-application

  • Photocoagulation

    Above is carried out when most of interretinal blood is absorbed.


Branch retinal vein occlusion

Branch retinal vein occlusion

  • More common than central retinal vein occlusion

  • Occur at following site

  • main branch at disc margin

  • Major branch vein away from disc

  • At A-V crossing causing quadratic occlusion

  • Small macular occlusion


Sudden painless loss of vision

  • Occlusion oedema & haemorrhge are limited to area drain by affected vein.

  • Vision is affected when macular area is involve.


Sudden painless loss of vision

Treatment-

  • Grid photocoagulations-

    in chronic macular odema

  • Scatterphotocoagulations-

    in neovascularisation


Vitreous haemorrhage

Vitreous haemorrhage

Usually occur from retinal vessels

Pre retinal intrageal

haemorrhage haemorrhage


Sudden painless loss of vision

Etiology-

  • Ultrasonography with B-scan-

    it help in diagnosis.


Sudden painless loss of vision

Symptoms-

  • In less haemorrhage-

Sudden painless loss of vision

The eye is the lamp of the body

If your eyes are good,

Your whole body will be full of light,

so

Take care of your eyes.
