Retinal arterial occlusion remains a difficult clinical entity to manage. Treatment can best be categorized as conservative (ocular massage, pharmacologic, anterior chamber paracentesis) and invasive (catheterization of the proximal ophthalmic artery through the femoral artery with the infusion of thrombolytic agents). Most reports remain anecdotal due to its low incidence (0.85/100,000/y).
