Hello dear...CRVO means ur central vein of retina is occluded and at such yound age its not good....this is due to elevated homocysteine which occludes blood vessels....u must follow ur physician instructions bcoz this time u were lucky that ut eyes got affected but in future it may affect ur heart also n there is increasrd risk of heart attack or stroke....so my advise is to continue medicatiins as per ur physician instructions
