My husband has had three shots in the eye of steroids; nothing seems to change. Is this the best solution or treatment for this condition?

Hello there

Kenolog is a common steroid that is used for retinal vein occlusion. This is done perhaps every 4-6 weeks when there is retinal swelling. More traditionally, lasers were used but in the last few years, steroids have replaced laser. So perhaps, you could inquire about the role of laser in the treatment of the retinal vein occlusion. I wish hime well, Dr. Stevens
