Anybody here with Central Retinal vein occlusion CVRO

Bazza1234 profile image

-- and associated macular edema??? I was diagnosed with this and had an injection almost immediately. At that time, my vision loss was not very bad and within 1 week I had gained my vision. BUT - I was unable to have another injection for 9 weeks and by that time my vision was VERY bad with quite severe macular edema. So severe that the Opthamologosts OCT machine could not register it. So anyway I have now had my second injection and wondering what to expect or look out for.
