Ocular ischemic syndrome (OIS) is characterized by ocular symptoms and signs that are secondary to severe carotid artery obstruction. We report a 69-year-old man who suffered from progressively blurred vision in both eyes. Fundus examination showed scattered areas of retinal hemorrhage, some with a white center, in both eyes. Fluorescence angiography revealed multiple microaneurysm-like hyperfluorescent spots over the retina mimicking diabetic retinopathy. Carotid Doppler ultrasonography revealed 90-95% stenosis of bilateral internal carotid arteries, and OIS was diagnosed. Thus, bilateral internal carotid artery stenting was performed. After treatment, the patient's visual acuity recovered within 1 month and the areas of white-centered retinal hemorrhage completely resolved within 6 months. © 2008 Elsevier. All rights reserved.
