Abstract

A 40-year-old male athlete developed a central retinal vein occlusion after intense exercise and secondary dehydration. A comprehensive systemic evaluation was within the normal range. After a series of 11 intravitreal injections of bevacizumab over a 24-month period, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography showed resolution of macular edema with a 55-letter gain in visual acuity.
