Surgical decompression of CRT: I have recently discussed in detail the problems and dangers of this surgical procedure 6 These procedures is of NO scientific merit at all, and could be dangerous. Thus, contrary to the prevalent impression, our study showed that pan retinal photo coagulation has no statistically significant beneficial effect in reducing neovascular glaucoma. The cornea and lens bend light so that it can focus on the retina at the back of our eye. Diabetic retinopathy may not have symptoms in the early stages but may eventually cause floaters or blurred vision. For example, in Figure 9a the retinal capillary bed filled very well when the eye was first seen within a week or two after the onset of the visual loss, in spite of being an ischemic CRVO by other parameters. Red-free photo of the same patient with central retinal vein occlusion as in the previous image, showing prominent optociliary shunt vessels. The advantage of ERG is that we can do this test even if the other eye is not perfectly normal, or in patients with only one eye. The arteries are thinned. Performing a minor surgical procedure known as anterior chamber paracentesis, in which numbing drops are used and a small amount of fluid is withdrawn from the front of the eye. Eye doctors speculate that he had had a central retinal vein occlusion CRVO, meaning a blockage in the main retinal vein, with resultant bleeding and damage.
