Newer peripheral imaging techniques have shown that this periperhal ischemia may be present more often than previously recognized. The retinal arteries may show spontaneous pulsations. -Angiogram shows no filling of arteries retina is oenematous and pallid, Cherry red = seeing through to choroid al circulation ciao- pallid and cherry red spot perfusion due to a cilioretinal artery branch of biliary circulation not retinal circulation majority: Embolus at lamina cribrosa = Calcific Cardiac origin or Fibrin Platelet or Cholesterol Carotid origin May have 20/30 or 20/40 vision but can't see loss of peripheral VF CRAO-Pallid, edema, hypo perfusion, multiple emboli, cilioretinal artery does not seem well perfused Ono categories in CRAO all ischemic!
