Role of Neodymium Double Frequency Laser Posterior Hyaloidotomy in Delayed Presentation of Sub-hyaloid Haemorrhage.

Cureus 2022 Jan 23;14(1):e21534. Epub 2022 Jan 23.

Ophthalmology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Gorakhpur, IND.

Laser hyaloidotomy with Nd: YAG or green argon laser is a non-invasive, out-patient procedure in which the posterior hyaloid face is punctured and the opening enables the drainage of sub-hyaloid haemorrhage into the vitreous. The blood is absorbed gradually and vision is improved within days with gradual clearance of the macular area. Researchers recommend laser treatment in recent haemorrhages (<2 weeks) while for delayed cases invasive surgeries are advised. Read More
