What is it?

If there is blood underneath the central part of the retina (macula), this is particularly devastating. This can occur suddenly as a result of age related macular degeneneration, retinal aneurysms, trauma or other vascular abnormalities.

How may it be treated?

There are various options for this. The haemorrhage can be moved or displaced with a bubble of gas. Alternatively, an operation can be undertaken to further facilitate displacement of this haemorrhage. Mr Chandra is experienced in both these techniques.
