Abstract
The prevalence and etiology of neovascular glaucoma (NVG) as a complication of central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is a debated issue. According to some authors, NVG associated with CRAO always involves underlying chronic ocular ischemic syndrome (COIS) as a primum movens for CRAO. However, we describe 5 cases of NVG following CRAO with no underlying COIS, confirmed by carotid Doppler studies and ultrasound color Doppler imaging (USCDI) of the ophthalmic artery (OA).
