In brief: Pain,visual loss

Pain is usual in the affected eye and is aggravated by eye movement.
Visual loss is commonly progressive, though initially it is blurring of vision. This may progress to a field/altitudinal defect. The pupil may be dilated and sluggish to react to light. Loss of visual acuity varies from none to loss of perception of light. Good visual acuity is regained after the initial attack, with exceptions.
