In the July 2006 issue of the ARCHIVES, D’Amico et al1 review their experiences with transvitreal optic disc puncture for central retinal vein occlusion. The trial was limited to patients aged 65 years or older and to eyes with a visual acuity of 20/200 or less.
D’Amico and colleagues concluded that their surgical procedure had not effectively restored visual acuity.
