Results: The commonest (60.87%) age group affected in RVO was 50-69 years. Majority of patients belonged to middle socioeconomic status. Systemic hypertension was the most frequently (52.17%) associated systemic condition to be found as predisposing factors for developing retinal vein occlusion. Other significant risk factors found in this study were diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolemia, and hypertriglyceridemia and hypermetropia was found to be another risk factor for the development of RVO.
Conclusion: Though RVOs occur with different facets of demography and predisposing factors, most of these are not in direct association with RVOs.
