Retinal Vein Occlusion

Retinal vein occlusion is the second most common cause of vision loss from retinal vascular disease, following diabetic retinopathy. Retinal vein occlusions can cause retinal ischemia, neovascular complications such as glaucoma, vitreous hemorrhage and retinal traction, and macular edema. It is often associated with risk factors like hypertension, open angle glaucoma, and diabetes mellitus. Similar to diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion is typically treated with laser coagulation or intravitreal application of steroids or anti-VEGF antibodies.
