Abstract

Subhyaloid hemorrhage is usually a benign condition that resolves spontaneously. However, it may take several months and is associated with risk of epiretinal mem- brane formation causing permanent visual impairment. The following report describes a patient who underwent single neodymium:YAG laser membranotomy for a subhyaloid hemorrhage in the macula.
