When a person suffers a central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO), time is of the essence. CRAO is the ocular equivalent of a cerebral stroke, and like a stroke, emergent treatment is necessary to prevent permanent retinal damage and vision loss.
Thanks to new automated optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems and an innovative new program at Mount Sinai Health System—one that brings together the expertise of ophthalmologists, neuroradiologists, and emergency department faculty—more patients with CRAO can receive timely diagnosis and treatment to save their sight.
