PURPOSE Retinal vascular occlusive disease is the second leading cause of permanent retinal blindness. The etiology of central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) is not well understood. The anatomy of the optic disk including the cribriform plate and scleral ring may contribute to the development of retinal vaso-oclussive diseases. Neurovascular compression within the confined space at this location may play a pathoetiologic role in CRVO. The authors performed radial optic neurotomy in patients with… CONTINUE READING
