Please review the definition for retinal ischemia [MP:0006190] "abnormal incidence of or response to loss of circulation in the retina; may be induced or spontaneous". This definition combines the occurrence of ischemia with ab abnormal response to induced ischemia (which may actually mean less ischemia or injury). Consider adding a term under abnormal response to injury [MP:0005164] for altered response to induced retinal ischemia injury.

    amended definition of retinal ischemia [MP:0006190] to:
    inadequate blood flow to the retina usually due to functional constriction or obstruction of a blood vessel

    new terms added:
    altered response to retinal ischemic injury [MP:0012048]
    increased susceptilbility to retinal ischemic injury [MP:0012049]
    decreased susceptilbility to retinal ischemic injury [MP:0012050]
