Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is a blockage of the small veins that carry blood away from the retina. The retina is the layer of tissue at the back of the inner eye that converts light images to nerve signals and sends them to the brain. Retinal vein occlusion is most often caused by hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) and the formation of a blood clot. The risk of these disorders increases with age, therefore retinal vein occlusion most often affects older people.
