    1. Central retinal artery occlusion is a stroke emergency that without rapid therapy can render patients irreversibly blind. The state-of-the-art, integrated service that we are pioneering at Mount Sinai will save patients' vision and act as a model for other centers to replicate.
    2. Stroke to the eye, like stroke to the brain, is a time-sensitive medical emergency. At the Mount Sinai Health System, our multidisciplinary teams use cutting-edge resources to deliver potentially vision-restoring care to these patients as quickly as possible.
    3. We have already seen results and saved vision as a result of our eye stroke service.
