Purpose: To study the long term course and visual prognosis in Eales disease.
Methods: Patients who had been examined between 1984 – 1989 were included in the study.
Results: A total of 34 patients were followed up of a minimum period of 10 years. The retinal leisons found during the initial examination was vitreous haemorrhage (34.5%) NVE (32.7%) vascular sheathing (30.9%) FVP (29.1%) NVD (14.5%) NVD and NVE (10.9%) & RD (5.4%) of eyes. visual acuity improved in 23.6% maintained in 58.2% & decreased in 18.2% of eyes. The complications were cataract, Tractional RD, Rubeosis iridis, Neovascular glaucoma & Phthisis bulbi.
Conclusion: The most important elements in dealing with Eales disease are early diagnosis, periodic follow up and adequate therapy depending upon the stage of the disease.
