Retinal vein occlusions (RVOs) are the second most common retinal vascular disorder after diabetic retinopathy. The early and accurate diagnosis of RVO is paramount so that therapy can be initiated in a timely manner to prevent vision decline. Newer imaging technologies integrated into current diagnostic algorithms are aiding in the diagnosis of RVO and guiding therapy. Further, significant visual and anatomic improvements have been demonstrated with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapies in patients with central or branch RVO-related macular edema, and refinement of treatment protocols have the potential to further enhance outcomes as well as reduce treatment burden. In this curbside consult, Drs. Carl Regillo and Christina Weng discuss the current use of imaging and biomarkers in the diagnosis as well as prognosis of RVO.
