International

A large population-based study in Israel reported a 4-year incidence of retinal vein occlusion of 2.14 cases per 1000 of general population older than 40 years and 5.36 cases per 1000 of general population older than 64 years.

In Australia, the prevalence of vein occlusion ranges from 0.7% in patients aged 49-60 years to 4.6% in patients older than 80 years. [9]

Pooled data from population studies from the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia show that CRVO affects 0.8 per 1000 persons. [10]
