Treatment
Patient was diagnosed with bilateral central retinal vein occlusions with ischemia.
Complete hematologic and coagulation workup came back negative (Table 5), but the homocysteine and CRP were both elevated. The patient was followed closely by ophthalmology for the first 6 months, including gonioscopy and undilated examination of the iris, to monitor for signs of neovascularization of the iris and neovascular glaucoma.
