Image Comments:

71-year-old woman presenting with a cilioretinal artery occlusion. Note the retinal whitening secondary to inner retinal edema in the distribution of cilioretinal artery perfusion. There is a prominent cherry-red spot due to intact choroidal circulation. On OCT, there is inner retinal thickening and blurring of retinal layers due to edema.
