Refraction revealed similar Rx to entering Rx, with hyperopia and presbyopia OU and astigmatism OD. BCVA was 20/20 OD, OS. Ocular examination revealed extensive hemorrhaging, exudates, and cotton wool spots in the superior arcades of the right eye consistent with a branch retinal vein occlusion. An inferior visual field defect was consistent with the retinal findings OD. Pingueculae were present OU as well as moderate nuclear sclerosis OU.
Due to extensive branch retinal vein occlusion in the right eye with associated visual field defect, the patient was urgently referred to an ophthalmologist for treatment.
