Ischemic optic neuropathy
Ischemic optic neuropathy is characterized by sudden loss of vision in one eye, typically in older individuals, with reduction in visual acuity vision, peripheral visual field loss, or both. The nonarteritic form can be associated with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, or other vasculopathic risk factors. The arteritic form is typically caused by giant cell arteritis.
