Hello there

At this point, you are doing everything right. Asprin or even more aggressive anti-platelet therapy like Pl,avix may be better. You should control your blood pressure and ensure your LDL is less than 100. These are all rish factors for central and branch retinal vein occlusions. Besides the avastin as indicated for macular edema, there is no other treatment as of 2010. Also at this point, it is not possible to repair damage caused by the poor circulation in the retina. I hope that answers your question, Regards *****
