A 72-year-old man presented with transient episodes of gradually descending vision loss in either eye. Both discs showed marked cupping, but applanation tensions were normal. Carotid occlusions were present. The etiology of the transient visual disturbances, the relationship of carotid disease to low tension glaucoma, and the management of such patients are discussed.
