Abstract

Retinal vascular occlusive disorders constitute one of the major causes of blindness and impaired vision. There is marked controversy on their pathogeneses, clinical features and particularly their management. Recently, advances in clinical research added antivascular endothelial growth factor, corticosteroids and sustained-release implants to our armamentarium in the management of retinal vein occlusions. The purpose of our paper is to provide an update and a brief review on the current treatment options of retinal vein occlusions.
