Carotid Occlusive Disease

Carotid occlusive disease is another systemic condition that has some very significant ophthalmic manifestations.  For the sake of brevity, this article will primarily highlight the systemic information we need to know for the OKAP, including transient ischemic attacks (TIAs).  I will post other articles pertaining to some of the ophthalmic manifestations of carotid occlusive disease, such as ocular ischemic syndrome and transient monocular visual loss (specifically amaurosis fugax).  Hopefully this will be a shorter one!
