Retinal branch vein occlusion is a common retinal vascular disorder that has benefited from many natural history and clinical treatment studies by numerous investigators over the last 20 years. Building on those investigations, a recent multicenter randomized clinical trial (the Branch Vein Occlusion Study Group) supported by the National Eye Institute has provided guidelines regarding therapeutic management for certain cases. It is hoped, however, that future basic research and clinical investigations will further define treatment guidelines, risk factors, and etiology.
