Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Just Answer
Are you available for chat now?
What you eye doctor has said is definitely true. One of the complications of branch retinal vein occlusion ( BRVO) is cystoid macular edema( CME). The treatment received so far is correct .
Is there any other treatment that would help?
Sorry, I meant "your" eye doctor.For treatment of CME grid laser is tried along with steroids. Injection Avastin helps to regress the vessels.Flurbiprofen eye drops are beneficial in early stages . I'm afraid that all possible methods of treatment have been tried already. The fact that the central vision is lost , it denotes that the macula, which is the central part of the retina contributing to 80% of our vision , is still having edema. These are refractory conditions which can take months to show improvement. I guess you need to wait some more time to see visible improvement. But as far as any other methods to be tried - well you have been given the best possible so far.
Thank you for answering my questions.
