Can vision be restored after treatment?

The recovery of vision depends on the duration of the disease, the location and extent of the venous obstruction and whether an ischaemic type of obstruction has occurred. In general, the longer the disease, the greater the extent of the obstruction and the more severe the ischaemia, the longer the disease duration, the more likely it is that only partial vision will be preserved after treatment and not fully restored.
Studies have shown that 37% of patients with branch retinal vein obstruction have spontaneous visual relief, and 34% of patients with visual acuity below 0.5 have visual acuity above 0.5 after 3 years.
