Central Retinal Vein Occlusion Symptoms

Retinal vein occlusions include a spectrum of disease ranging from mild, having small or no impact on the vision to serious, leading to blindness in the eye. The central retinal vein occlusion symptoms depend on the size and exact location of the blockage. Most patients note a sudden blurring or distortion of the vision that can be connected with a blind spot. The vision loss is generally not connected with any pain.
