What are Symptoms of Retinal Vein Occlusion

The symptoms of retinal vein occlusion (RVO) typically affect one eye and can vary depending on the severity and type of blockage.

Here are the most common warning signs for a retinal vein occlusion:

  1. Blurry vision
  2. Sudden vision loss
  3. Floaters
  4. Distorted vision
  5. Chronic vision loss
  6. Dark or empty spots in your vision
  7. Difficulty seeing colors
  8. Difficulty with reading

If you experience any of the above symptoms, it is important to contact your eye doctor. Early detection and treatment can prevent severe permanent vision loss and blindness.

  • Retinal vein occlusion can also happen with no symptoms.
  • Getting regular eye exams is important because your eye doctor can detect signs of retinal vein occlusion, even before you notice any vision problems.
