Knowing that hemorrhages can severely impact macular function and recognizing the type of macular pathology involved helps the surgeon deal with the macular complications correctly.


Review of the author’s cases over a period exceeding two decades.

Effectiveness / Safety: 

Removal of the macular hemorrhages is a simple and effective method to restore vision in eyes that otherwise would not only have a protracted recovery, but it also prevents late macular complications.

Take home message:

Vitrectomy for Terson syndrome is incomplete if the macular complications of the bleeding are not addressed.
