Retinal arterial occlusions are considered an ophthalmic emergency. Optometrists are vital in the assessment, diagnosis and triage, as patients often initially present to them. In this on line powerpoint tutorial, I use a case to illustrate the signs and symptoms or an arterial occlusion, as well as the investigations used to make the diagnosis and triage criteria for referral. Treatment options are also identified and discussed. A self test is included at the end – with answers.
