The.RG may be normal in some cases despite poor visual acuity if the blood flow renormalizes. It is very important that both the cornea and lens are clear as this allows the light to pass directly through the front of the eye to the retina. Our studies have shown that this is usually an invalid criterion for diagnosis of ischemic CRVO by fluoresce in angiography. “What are the chances of a non-ischemic CRVO changing to ischemic CRVO, and after how long?” In fact, in half of people with CRVO, final visual acuity remains within three lines on the eye chart of the first visual acuity measurements taken. The occurrence of glaucoma following occlusion of the central retinal artery. Glaucoma associated with retinal disorders and retinal surgery. Medline .
This is performed by a “swinging torch test”. Macular enema is one of the prominent treatable causes of decreased visual acuity in patients with CRVO.

Over the years many treatments have been advocated enthusiastically and success claimed but none has stood the test of time. A retinal artery occlusion will cause you to lose part of your sight.
