ABSTRACT
The article reports on the case of a 24-year-old Indian doctor who went to the ophthalmology department to complain about bright lights in his field of vision. He was previously diagnosed with inferior branch retinal vein occlusion and had undergone laser treatment. His visual acuities were examined. Following fundoscopy, there were multiple areas of sheathing of the retinal veins in both eyes, with small branch retinal vein occlusion in the right eye.
