Cyclic variation in onset of central retinal vein occlusion.

    Abstract

    We studied the seasonal incidence of onset of symptoms of central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) in 105 patients over a 5-year period. Their onset showed a significant cyclic variation (p less than 0.01), being most frequent in the months September through to February. We believe this seasonal variation may in part reflect seasonal changes in haemostasis and retinal perfusion, though other unidentified factors play a significant role.
