Retinal Vein Occlusion
After diabetes retinal vein occlusions are the second most common abnormality in the flow of blood through the retina.
Retinal vein occlusions are therefore, unfortunately, fairly common presentations to eye specialists and at Bettersight we have developed specialist expertise in the diagnosis, investigation and treatment of these conditions.
A retinal vein occlusion occurs when one or more of the tiny retinal veins becomes blocked by a blood clot. A painless decrease in vision in one eye is the most common reason for a patient to seek help. In this section we outline the various types of retinal vein occlusions that can affect a patient and most importantly we set out some of the treatment options that we at Bettersight have access to.
