Description

Retinal Artery Occlusion is a disease of the Retina.
The condition in which there is blockage in one of the Arteries that carries blood to the Retina is known as Retinal Artery Occlusion.

The Retina is the picture maker which provides a clear image to the Brain. It is a light sensitive area located behind the Lens. It contains photosensitive cells which convert the light rays into impulses with the help of the optic nerve.

The Arteries carry oxygenated blood to the Retina. If there is any blockage in these Arteries, it may develop Retinal Artery Occlusion. As a result, the Retina fails to make a clear image in the Brain and causes a Blurred Vision.
