Amaurosis fugax is a transient visual disturbance that is typically caused by a circulatory, ocular, or neurological underlying condition. Patients with amaurosis fugax are at risk for stroke, myocardial infarction, vision loss and other serious consequences. A thorough case history, careful clinical and ocular examination and appropriate systemic testing will lead to the best possible outcome for these at-risk patients.
