Abstract: 

Purpose: To evaluate role of axial length in Central Retinal Vein Occlusion (CRVO). Patients and Methods: The study group consisted of 30 patients with unilateral CRVO (19 ischemic & 11 nonischemic). The control group included 29 individuals who matched the study group patients in age, sex systemic hypertension and diabetes mellitus status.
The axial lengths of affected and fellow eyes of patients and controls were measured using A-scan ultrasonography.
Results: The mean axial length of affected eyes was not statistically significantly shorter than that of unaffected eyes in the CRVO group (22.88mm vs 22.90 mm) & its two ischemic & nonischemic subgroups (P>0.05). There were not statistically significant differences in axial length between control eyes and affected eyes in the CRVO group (23.11mm vs 22.88mm) & ischemic & nonischemic subgroups (P>0.05) as well.
Conclusion: Our study did not demonstrate a significantly shorter axial length in CRVO eyes without macular edema. Axial length as a measurement of axial hyperopia may not be a risk factor for CRVO.
