Vascular Optic Neuropathies

  • Mark J. Kupersmith


Knowledge of the vascular supply to the optic nerve, retina, and choroid (see Chap. 1) is essential for the understanding of visual defects that are caused by segmental or focal ischemia of the optic nerve or retina. Recall that the optic nerve and the retina have different blood supplies: the retina is supplied by the branches from the central retinal artery and the optic nerve is supplied principally by the posterior ciliary/circle of Haller-Zinn circulation.
