Retinal Vein Occlusion

Retinal Vein Occlusion Stockton | Manteca CA

There are veins in the retina that drain blood out of the retina, back to the heart. If those veins become blocked, this can cause fluid leakage, which can lead to vision loss. If you experience sudden loss of your central vision or a blurry or missing area of vision, call our office at once.
