Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors describe two cases of premacular hemorrhage secondary to retinal macroaneurysm, with significant loss of vision. A few low-energy bursts of Nd:YAG laser were applied to perforate the anterior surface of the hemorrhage, subsequently draining the blood into the vitreous cavity. The blood gradually cleared from the vitreous, with restoration of good vision. Nd:YAG laser seems to be a safe and efficient method for treating premacular hemorrhage and should be considered as a therapeutic option.
