What is it?

- Central vein occlusion (the central vein of the retina is obstructed)
- Branch vein occlusion. This consists of an obstruction caused by a blockage in the areas where the arteries and veins cross
- Examination of the fundus of the eye
- Fluorescein angiography (FA)
- OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)
- Blood pressure monitoring
- Control of the cholesterol levels of the blood
- Quit smoking
- Central vein occlusion: This causes a loss or decrease in sight that can even become very serious
