In the caucasian eye the retina is reddish-orange (Figure I). This colour may have a superimposed pattern caused by areas of different pigment density. In the coloured races the denser pigment absorbs light and the fundus appears much darker (Figure 2).

56 Central retinal vein obstruction presents less dramatic symptoms than those of arterial involvement. Although vision fails, its loss is neither so sudden nor complete. The fundus changes are usually severe. Haemorrhages are widespread throughout the retina. The deeper round-shaped haemorrhages are masked by the superficial flame-shaped variety caused by leakage of blood in the nerve fibre layer of the retina. The retinal veins are grossly dilated and loop in snake-like fashion in and out of the oedematous retina (Figure 11).
