Summary of "Prevention and management of iatrogenic blindness associated with aesthetical filler injections."

Injectable fillers have become one of the most performed aesthetical treatments worldwide over the past two decades. They are frequently applied to the face, offering effective and safe alternatives to more invasive surgical procedures. Nevertheless, there are serious risks associated with filler-based treatment. Visual impairment stands as a rare yet catastrophic adverse event associated with intravascular embolization of injected material to the retina or other areas of the central nervous system; potentially leading to permanent visual loss. This article presents a comprehensive revision of blindness secondary to aesthetical filler injections, offering up-to-date strategies for prevention and management.
