Depending on the cause and severity of a BRVO or CRVO, treatment may include one or more the following:
- Close clinical observation
- Intravitreal injections of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti- VEGF) medications (Lucentis, Avastin, Eylea) or steroids
- Laser therapy
- Vitrectomy surgery
In addition to treatment of your eye, if you have CRVO or BRVO, it is very important that you work with your primary care physician to optimally control your cardiovascular risk factors, including blood pressure, cholesterol, weight and diabetes.
