Abstract

Retina is the innermost tunic of the Eyeball; it is thin, delicate and transparent membrane. It is the most highly developed tissue of the Eye. Retinal arteriole and Vein share an adventitial sheath and because of Arteriolosclerosis thickening of arteriole is associated with compression of the Vein and this intern causes secondary changes including Venous endothelial cell loss, Thrombus formation and Occlusion.[1] These changes appear in both arteriole and vein that contribute to Retinal Vein Occlusions. Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion caused when a single branch of the central vein is blocked due to an embolism and spasm. Retinal Vein Occlusion is the second most common retinal disease after Diabetic Retinopathy. BRVO has a good prognosis of 50 to 60% of eyes are reported to have an improved Visual Acuity or better.
