To evaluate the efficacy of radial optic neurotomy in the treatment of central retinal vein occlusion with severe vision loss.
A retrospective chart review was performed on the medical records of patients diagnosed with central retinal vein occlusion with severe vision loss treated with radial optic neurotomy.
Eight patients with severe vision loss due to central retinal vein occlusion were treated with radial optic neurotomy. Baseline (pre-operative) best-corrected visual acuity ranged from 20/200 to count fingers. Final best-corrected visual acuity ranged from count fingers to light perception. Median baseline (pre-operative) OCT central foveal thickness was 352 µm. Median final OCT central foveal thickness was 376 µm
Radial optic neurotomy is not an effective treatment for central retinal vein occlusion with severe vision loss.
