Retinal Vascular Occlusions

Retinal Vascular Occlusions

Retinal vascular occlusions are a type of eye condition that can cause vision problems.

They occur when the blood vessels in the retina become blocked, preventing blood and oxygen from reaching the retina. This can lead to vision loss or blindness. Retinal vascular occlusions are usually treated with surgery or medication.

Retinal vascular occlusions can be caused by several different things, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and atherosclerosis. People who are over the age of 50 are more likely to develop this condition.

Symptoms of retinal vascular occlusions include sudden vision loss, floaters, or blind spots in your vision. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should see an eye doctor immediately. Retinal vascular occlusions need to be treated quickly to prevent permanent vision loss.If you have a retinal vascular occlusion, your eye doctor will likely recommend surgery to unblock the blocked blood vessel.

In some cases, medication may be used instead of surgery.
