Retinal Vein Occlusions are vascular diseases affecting the Central Retinal Vein and its branches causing decreased retinal drainage resulting in significant clinical and functional pathological changes. RVO determines the increase of vascular permeability, with edema and hemorrhage and development of collateral vessels in a few weeks. Among the serious consequences of venous occlusion is the installation of macular edema to which depends long-term visual prognosis. Macular Edema is the accumulation of intraretinal serous fluid in the macular area caused by the breakdown of blood-retinal barrier.
