Retinal vein occlusion

Retinal vein occlusion refers to a blockage in the veins that transport blood away from the retina. The condition is caused by a number of factors, the most common of which is the hardening of the arteries as well as the development of a blood clot. Some common symptoms include sudden loss of vision or blurred vision. While it is not always necessary to treat the condition, there are some medications which Dr Wolff may prescribe for the management of the symptoms. In some cases, laser treatment to the retina may be recommended, while injections that prevent the growth of abnormal new blood vessels can also be effective.
