Abstract

Central vein occlusion (CVO) is a common retinal vascular disorder with potentially blinding complications. The two mayor complications associated with CVO are reduced vision resulting from macular involvement, which might be present as macular edema, macular haemorrhage or macular nonperfusion and neovascular glaucoma secondary to iris neovascularisation, which might result in pain and blindness [1].
