Advantages:

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.

Methods:

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.
