Abstract

Central retinal artery occlusion causes severe loss of vision. Treatment trials include massage of the globe, paracentesis, antiglaucomatous eye drops, haemodilution or lysis therapy, which in individual cases did improve the visual outcome, although in general the prognosis remains poor. In this study we applied hyperbaric oxygenation treatment additionally to haemodilution to overcome retinal ischaemia until spontaneous recanalisation of the central retinal artery occurs.
