Abstract. Purpose:To present a review of incomplete central retinal artery occlusion(CRAO). Cases:We diagnosed 10 eyes of 10 cases that showed findings of CRAO without cherry-red spot in the past 10 years. The series comprised 6 males and 4 females. The age ranged from 17 to 76 years, with 66 years as the median. Results:Initial visual acuity was 0.5 or better in 3 eyes and 0.1 or worse in 2 eyes. Final visual acuity was 0.6 or over in all the eyes. Visual acuity expressed as logMAR averaged 0.568±0.576 initially and 0.073+0.088 at the final examination. The difference was significant(p=0.011). Systemic hypertension was present in 8 cases, diabetes in 2, and cardiac disorder and cerebral infarction in one case each. Cryoglobulinemia was present in a female aged 17 years. Conclusion:Cases of incomplete CRAO showed relatively good visual acuity initially and finally, suggesting the occlusion of central retinal artery to be mild and reversible.
