The article discusses a study which examined the potential of laser bypass procedure to induce a chorioretinal venous anastomosis to improve vision in patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Results showed a slower progression to the ischemic form of CRVO in treated patients. Fluorescein angiography revealed other evidence for improvement in retinal function including increased visual acuity and fluorescein transit time. The researchers noted complications such as neovascularization, macular traction or non-resolving vitreous hemorrhages.
