Giant cell arteritis is a rare, but urgent and potentially life-threatening, presentation that can have ocular consequences. This course details how to tell which patients are likely to have it based on their history and symptoms as well as how to test for it using both imaging and lab work, and reviews the optometrist’s role in treating and comanaging these patients.
