Eye Stroke
High blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar, i.e. the 3 highs, are common in urban population. They can happen due to an unhealthy lifestyle, and lead to premature vascular sclerosis, blood clots or even thrombosis.

In case of occlusion, ischemia may occur in the optic nerves or retina if deprived of nutrients, causing eye stroke and possibly loss of eyesight. If not treated in time, some patients may suffer brain stroke or heart disease.

The keys to reducing risk of eye stroke are to adopt a balanced diet, exercise regularly and quit smoking. Seek medical attention when vision remains blurred or field of vision is narrowed.

Other Common Neuro-ophthalmological Conditions
  • Optic neuritis
  • Demyelinating Optic Neuritis
  • Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD)

The fact that optical neuritis can result from myriad causes highlights the importance of thorough examination.

If you suffer sudden deterioration in eyesight, seek check-up and treatment at the earliest opportunity to prevent permanent loss of eyesight.
