Answer

United States

Central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) and branch retinal vein occlusion constitute the second most common retinal vascular disorder. The nonischemic type is more common than the ischemic type.

The Beaver Dam Eye Study Group reported the 15-year cumulative incidence of CRVO to be 0.5%. [8]
