Retinal vascular changes in retrograde optic atrophy.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Five patients with unilateral optic atrophy of extraocular origin had a normal retinal vasculature. Clinical examination of the patients included color fundus photographs and fluorescein angiography. After comparing the blood vessels in the blind eye with those in the normal fellow eye, we concluded that vascular attenuation is neither invariably associated with optic atrophy, nor solely caused by decreased local oxygen demand in the retina.
