The best treatment is to avoid the activities that cause symptoms. If symptoms can get worse, you should have embolization which reduces blood flow to the vein by injecting a sticky compound into it. Another option is surgery to remove the vein. But the surgery is not easy, which could causes vision loss, double vision, a droopy eyelid or unequal pupil size.
