Abstract

Incidence estimates for postoperative vision loss after nonocular surgery range from 0.013% for all surgeries up to 0.2% following spine surgery. The most common neuro-ophthalmologic causes of postoperative vision loss are the ischemic optic neuropathies (IONs), either anterior or posterior.
