Case 5-11. Central Retinal Vein Occlusion
An 80-year-old woman had a non-ischemic central retinal vein occlusion in her right eye associated with a visual acuity of 20/300, Slit-lamp biomicroscopy (A) displayed significant hemorrhages throughout the retina, dilated retinal veins, mild swelling of the optic disc, and macular edema.
A series of radial OCT tomograms (B) was obtained through the macula at different angular orientations. Diffuse retinal thickening was observed, and the foveal thickness was increased to 430 |im, The fluid accumulation appeared preferentially in the outer retinal layer with the increased retinal thickness mostly confined to the minimally reflective region just anterior to the retinal pigment epithelium. The nasal retina exhibited significantly more thickening than the temporal retina.
