About this study
The goal of this study is to update the incidence of perioperative vision loss from ischemic optic neuropathy, retinal vein or artery occlusion, and cortical blindness from all non-ocular general anesthesia surgery, including robotic surgery, that has been performed at Mayo Clinic from 2003-2012. The study will also aim to determine the visual acuity outcomes following perioperative vision loss.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
