  • Giant Cell Arteritis: A Cause Lurking Behind Several Common Ocular Diagnoses

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/22/2017

    Giant cell arteritis (GCA) regularly presents to eye care providers. While anterior ischemic optic neuropathy is the most common ocular manifestation of GCA, amaurosis fugax, retinal artery occlusions, cranial nerve palsies, and posterior ischemic optic neuropathy are also sequelae. Early diagnosis and urgent treatment of GCA is required to prevent possible bilateral blindness. Standards of care for the more common etiologies of the ocular manifestations of GCA may not involve the same urgency of intervention. Therefore, optometrists are placed in the difficult situation of determining the likelihood of GCA being the underlying cause of these relatively common ocular diagnoses.
