Question

 

 

Dear Doctor

I was recently diagnosed with Vitreous Hemorrhage. I want your valuable suggestion on the attached report.

I consulted two doctors in Kuwait and both of them were inquiring if I have diabetes or high blood pressure.

Whereas, I took both the test and found them to be normal. This ruled out the possibility  of having Vitreous Hemorrhage due to Diabetes or High blood pressure.

The Doctor said, that I need not worry about this and can use the eye drops and cream to apply in my eyes and over a period of time it will heal. 

I would like to know if there can be any other root cause for this? I do use Mac screen for 8 hours a day. Can this be the reason? Is there something that I need to worry about? As my eye sight has been reduced. Your feedback and suggestion would be highly appreciated.

Thanks

 

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

The OCT image that you submit is not clear as there are many noises in the image and the report that you submit doesn't show what the is source of vitreous hemorrhage in your right eye

At your age the most common cause of mild vitreous hemorrhage is posterior vitreous detachment with tearing of small retinal vessels. The vitreous is attached to the retina and for many reasons, the vitreous is detached from the retina but sometimes this detachment can cause tear to small retinal blood vessels and also tear to the retina it self. so we have to make sure that there is no tear to the retina which can cause retinal detachment.

You have to go back to your doctor and ask him to full examine the far periphery of the retina to make sure there is no retinal tear.

Keep me posted about your condition
