Branch Vein Occlusion is blockage of blood outflow through one branch of the central retinal vein (usually superior temporal) by an overlying hardened retinal artery. Associated findings include retinal vein engorgement, flame-shaped hemorrhages, macular edema, cotton-wool spots, and usually some degree of reduced vision.

Once Fluorescein Angiography was performed it was visible that the BVO was superior to the Macula.
