A 66-year-old female complained of hitting the right-side mirror of her car while parking. She also had multiple episodes of acute-onset, bilateral, painless, transient blurred vision lasting for 30 minutes at a time for the past several weeks. She had hypertension and osteoporosis but the rest of her past medical and surgical, social, and family history was non-contributory. On examination, best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in the right eye (OD) and 20/25 in the left eye (OS). Extraocular motility, pupil, intraocular pressure measurements, slit lamp biomicroscopy, and dilated funduscopic examinations were all normal in both eyes (OU). Automated (Humphrey) visual field (24-2) testing is shown in Fig. 17.1A. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain is shown in Figs. 17.1B and 17.1C.
