BRANCH RETINAL VEIN OCCLUSION (BRVO)
Arteries carry blood from the heart to various body parts and veins return it. The retina has one major artery and one major vein, which is called the central retinal vein. Sometimes branches of this vein can be blocked. This is called BRANCH RETINAL VEIN OCCLUSION.

WHAT CAN BE DONE TO IMPROVE VISION?
The only known way to improve vision is to treat the macular edema. Treatment options proven to be effective in reducing edema and improving vision to some degree include medicines injected into the eye such as VEGF blockers (Lucentis and Avastin) or steroids (Triamcinolone and Ozurdex) and laser. Sometimes there is too much hemorrhage in the retina to laser and several months may be necessary for the hemorrhage to spontaneously clear before laser can be considered. “”In the center we develop a new technique by dissolving the blood clot with laser blast which is unique in itself.Patient improve the vision within half an hour after the procedure””.
A New Technique "Laser Clot Blast Therapy for Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion
In this Technique the Yag laser break the clot blocking the vein in the “branch retinal vein occlusion or Central Retinal Vein Occlusion”, by an ingenious method. The Patent gains vision immediately after the application of the device in those cases where recovery of the vision has been mentioned as impossible in the past.
