Transient visual loss
Clarification of the mechanism and cause of transient visual loss first depends on separating monocular and binocular symptoms and signs. Binocular transient visual loss usually reflects cerebrovascular vertebrobasilar circulation thromboembolism, systemic hypoperfusion, or migraine. Monocular transient visual loss is often attributable to arteriostenotic disease of the internal carotid artery in the cervical or intracranial segment, or stenosis of the ophthalmic artery or its central retinal artery branch.
