Welcome to JA.
After she had central retinal vein occulsion (CRVO) the blood resolution creates distortion in her vision. The CRVO causes small new vessels that easily bleed to grow on the nerve that helps her see. In order to preserve what is left of her vision in the affected eye, and also prevent the possibility of her developing glaucoma
with increased eye pressure from the blockage of the drainage system from the complication of CRVO, it is recommended the laser be use to zap areas of the back of her eyes (retina) that is swollen and/or producing abnormal substance. This can be detected by the eye doctor after the injection of dye into the arm and studying the image photographs from the eye. In addition, she would be started on steroid eye drops to help reduce eye inflammation.
One of the main reason people develop CRVO is from blood clot in the tiny blood vessel in the center of the main nerve (optic nerve) of the eye. Aspirin can reduce clotting, and that is the reason for recommending aspirin. If used, 81 aspirin is the choice, and it is mainly for the concern of the good eye. Now, in the eye with CRVO, her vision may improve slightly depending on the extent of the original damage. I encourage her to follow-up and allow the eye doctor perform the laser when appropriate. I also suggest that she control her cholestereol and high blood pressure if she any these abnormal.
