The goal in this work is to evaluate the streptokinase as a line of treatment in the retinal artery occlusions. The ability of streptokinase to lyse clot was first recognized in the 1930. The logical approach to the treatment in these indications is the early restoration of blood circulation in order to preserve the organ deprived from oxygen supply and to prevent chronic sequelae. Fifteen patient were picked along 3 years from the emergency room complaining of Sudden loss of vision They were amassed into 2 assemblies The former embodied 10 cases (6 males & 4 females) treated with streptokinase 1.5 million unit as one dose, heparine was injected after 6 hours by a bulous dose 15.000 unit. 1.V. the some management, without using streptokinase, were applied latter five patients (aged between 29-68 years) were kept for comparison between both groups. Results demonstrated Progress in vision and field in the first group owing to their vascular background. The effectivity of adding streptokinase was high in comparison to heparine alone. Interference should take place in the first hour from the attack. Older clots ftbrinolysis would not benefit the patient.
