In brief: Yes. BRVO & CRVO.

Branch retinal vein occlusion (brvo) and central retinal vein occlusion (crvo) are due to clotting in these tiny retinal vessels.
There are mild and severe vein obstructions leading to varying degrees of vision loss. In the last five years, several innovations in the treatment of these diseases has occurred. Early detection and treatment of the condition and it's underlying causes is key. Exam.

In brief: Not likely

There is no connection between a leg vein clot and the circulation in your eye.
Unless you have a defect in the wall of your heart , there should be no way that a leg clot can pass to your eye.

A blood clot in a retinal vein in the eye is a common cause of vision loss, especially in patients with high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries. It is called retinal vein occlusion. An embolus is a clot or other material that breaks loose and travels through the body.
