Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is a disease of the eye where the flow of blood through the central retinal artery is blocked (occluded). There are several different causes of this occlusion; the most common is carotid artery atherosclerosis.
Central retinal artery occlusions cause sudden, acute, and painless loss of vision in one eye. Fundoscopic exam will show a red lesion, called a "cherry red spot," with surrounding pale retina (the pale color is caused by ischemia of the retina)
The ophthalmic artery branches off into the central retinal artery which travels with the optic nerve until it enters the eye. This central retinal artery provides nutrients to the retina of the eye, more specifically the inner retina and the surface of the optic nerve. Variations, such as branch retinal artery occlusion, can also occur. Some people have cilioretinal arterial branches, which may or may not be included in the blocked portion.
Dr Nishikant Borse is well known for his pioneering work in Central Retinal Artery Occlusion. He has developed a surgical technique to treat this condition which is considered “uncurable”.
For this work he has won the “Rhett Buckler Award “ at the American Society of Retina Specialist annual Conference in 2018 ; “The Cesare Forlini Award “ at the European Vitreoretinal Society Annual Conference in 2019 & also “The C S Reshmi Award” at the All India Ophthalmological Society Conference in 2018.
