Mechanism of Amaurosis Fugax (transient monocular blindness)
Mechanism of Amaurosis Fugax (transient monocular blindness)

This stock medical exhibit features multiple side images of the arterial supply of the neck, eye and brain to describe the process of Amaurosis Fugax (transient monocular blindness). It compares the normal condition vs. one with vision loss (an indicator for future strokes). Detailed enlargements of the carotid artery bifurcation detail normal blood flow, 40% blocked bloodflow with plaque, and finally an emboli breaking off from the plaque causing blockage of the ophthalmic artery resulting in temporary loss of vision.
