Effect of Nd:Yag Laser Hyaloidotomy for Premacular Subhyaloid Haemorrhage
INTRODUCTION: Premacular subhyaloid hemorrhage is a common condition leading to severe sudden vision loss in various conditions.This study investigated the effects of drainage of premacular subhyaloid hemorrhage into the vitreous with Nd:YAG laser treatment. Photodisruption with Zeiss Nd.Yag laser done in the inferior part of the the hemorrhage to create hole in ILM for gravitational drainage of blood in vitreous. A rapid resolution of subhyaloid hemorrhage with improvement of visual acuity was achieved in all patients treated with Nd:YAG laser posterior hyaloidotomy, without evidence of damage to the retina or choroid. Nd:YAG laser posterior hyaloidotomy is simple, effective, safe and non invasive procedure for draining a premacular hemorrhage into the vitreous cavity and to avoid vitreoretinal surgery and complication related to long standing macular toxicity by blood.
