Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are essential for visual preservation and reversal of blindness in these patients. The principal purpose of this review is to describe the mechanistic basis, clinical signs, diagnostic methods, and treatment options for retinal diseases causing sudden onset of blindness with absence of typical signs of intraocular inflammation or retinal degeneration-sudden acquired… CONTINUE READING
