Vitreous Haemorrhage

Vitreous haemorrhage is a relatively common condition and occurs when blood vessels in the eye rupture. Some common symptoms include loss of vision and floaters. Most patients will experience hazy vision and a red hue. Some of the common causes are diabetic eye disease, retinal tears and trauma. Vitreous haemorrhage is usually treated by means of vitrectomy, a procedure during which a tiny incision is made in the eye. A special surgical tool is placed in the eye through which the vitreous fluid can be removed. Once all of the vitreous fluid has been removed, the eye is filled with another fluid solution and the incisions are closed.
