High Incidence of Neovascularization After Retinal Artery Occlusion

March 7, 2011

European Journal Ophthalmology: More than most think, researchers noted, in a small retrospective study, a neovascularization rate of 18% after CRAO, as early as two weeks after the event. They urge close follow-up to avoid neovascular glaucoma (rate of 15%). My experience suggests otherwise, and I think this study is not typical.

    I recently became blind in my left eye as a result of sudden and painless CRAO. Am looking for research in the correction of this condition. Would love to share information with other victims. Who is doing the most advanced work in this area? Are any organizations doing medical trials?

    nothing can reverse the damage from crao. im sorry. it is important to see if there is anything that can be done to make sure it doesnt happen to the other eye.
