Vein Occlusion occurs when the veins carrying blood from the retina back to the heart are obstructed. A Vein Occlusion can cause leaking of blood into the eye and vision loss.
Risks factors for Vein Occlusion include: cigarette smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, Glaucoma, diabetes and other eye conditions.
