Stroke & Vascular Disorders
Amaurosis fugax consists of transient monocular or binocular visual loss due to retinal artery ischemia, classically experienced as painless and resembling a curtain or shade descending over the eye, or a blur, cloud, or fog over the vision. If triggered by bright light, it can suggest severe carotid stenosis. It may be caused by a multitude of pathologic processes, some of which may lead to stroke or blindness.
