Amourosis fugax is a symptoms referring to transient loss of vision. It is usually due to vascular insufficiency of the brain that affects both eyes. It may be referred to as a mini stroke, therefore, full evaluation to exclude risk factors such as high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol level is indicated.
