What are the treatments for an eye stroke and can you regain full eyesight?

Eye stroke could refer to several different conditions. For example, a central or branch retinal vein occlusion can be treated to the extent that the swelling in the macula can be treated with anti-VEGF or steroid injections into the eye or sometimes laser. Some vision could be regained. However, it is not common to regain full eyesight.
