Retinal Vein Occlusion (RVO) Treatment
Retina Associates, PA
Veins in your eye—known as retinal veins—are an important part of your eye's normal circulation. They move blood out of your eye toward your heart. A retinal vein occlusion is the blockage of one of these veins.
RVO can lead to swelling of the macula, the part of our eye responsible for central vision and fine detail. This swelling can cause blurry or distorted vision in the affected eye. In some cases, RVO can lead to permanent vision loss.
