CRVO can't be cured, but treatment can improve your vision or keep your symptoms from getting worsen. Diagnosing CRVO early and treating it as soon as possible can help reduce the chance of vision loss. CRVO is treated by injecting medicines inside the eye called Anti VEGF injections which lowers the VEGF level and thereby reduce the swelling of the macula ( the central part of the eye ). Sometimes, steroids injections are also used to help treat the swelling. LASER treatment is carried out in severe cases and when new abnormal vessels are growing in the eye.
