RVO, Retinal Vein Occlusion

Awhile back, I noticed a blood vessel in my right eye running from the corner of my eye by the nose to the center of my eye had become quite large. I mean it was big and very apparent. My vision had been blurry in my right eye for quite some time and it seemed to worsen. So, off I go to do some research on the electronic information highway in advance of the future appointment with my ophthalmologist who I visit on an annual basis.

Enough of me. Let’s continue on to learn a little something about one very common eye disorder.

Do you know about RVO, Retinal Vein Occlusion? RVO is a common vascular disorder of the retina and is the second leading cause of vision loss.

I have two brief web pages to recommend for you if you wish to read more about RVO, Retinal Vein Occlusion. They are:
Ophthalmology, Retinal Vein Occlusion, What is Retinal Vein Occlusion? (pdf pamphlet), Patient Information, Addenbrook’s Hospital
Retinal Vein Occlusion from MedlinePlus
