A complication of ischemic branch retinal vein occlusion
The present case has been reported in the Indian Journal of Ophthalmology.

A 48-year-old male with ischemic superotemporal branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) in the right eye with no known systemic disease had been managed with sectoral laser photocoagulation.

His 55 degree multicolor fundus image on follow-up revealed a large neovascularization of the disc exerting traction over the macula. Laser marks are seen superiorly. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) shows the neovascular frond and nonperfusion area. Owing to traction, the vascular architecture is distorted.

Major takeaway:-
- OCTA in retinal vein occlusion can show nonperfusion areas, collaterals, and neovascular fronds.

- During the follow-up of these patients, fundus photography and OCTA can help to individualize treatment and follow-up options.

- OCTA acts an no invasive method to predict the visual prognosis.
