Retinal vein occlusion is an eye condition commonly seen in most eye care offices. It is second only to diabetic retinopathy as a cause of visual loss due to retinal vascular disease. There are two forms of retinal vein occlusion:
Branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO)
Central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).
Some of the complications of retinal vein occlusion may be appropriately managed with laser treatment. It is hoped that through further research, even better strategies for prevention and management will be developed.
