What is central retinal vein occlusion?

The retina is a thin layer of tissue that lines the back of the eyes. It is responsible for turning the light signals your eyes receive into images in your brain. Central retinal vein occlusion occurs when the main vein that drains blood from the retina is obstructed (usually by blood clots), which can cause the obstructed vein to leak blood or fluid into the retina.
