Following diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occulusion is probably the most common retinal vascular disorder. Author studied 47 cases of occlusion of the retinal vein in aspects of sex, age, laterality, change of visual acity, associated diseases and location of the affected vein. The results were as follows; 1. There was no significant difference in mobidity rate of retinal vein occlusion between male and female or right and left. 2.73% of BRVO affected superior temporal branch of retinal vein. 3. The incidence of BRVO is 2.2 times of that of CRVO. 4. The visual acuities of initial visit were below 0.1 in 73% of CRVO and 46% of BRVO. 5. 40% of CRVO retained or regained vision of 0.1 or better. 6. The most common associated disease was systemic hypertension.
Key Words: retinal vein occlusion;systmic hypertension
