Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer

Sorry , your request came when I was in the middle of typing the question asked before. Please find below the answer-

If you are referring to a hemorrhage in the vitreous ( middle of the eye) , then it is due to formation of new blood vessels in the retina and on the surface of the optic nerve. Common causes for retinal neovascularisation are diabetes ( diabetic retinopathy) , central retinal vein occlusion , radiation therapy to the eye, sickle cell disease. These new vessels may rupture and cause a bleed into the thick gel in the middle of the eye called vitreous. A vitreous hemorrhage causes sudden reduction in vision and it resolves on its own by 6 weeks to 6 months.Vision improves gradually as the hemorrhage resolves.

The other conditions where new vessels appear in the choroid ( inner layer of the eye), called choroidal neovascularisation and is most often seen in age related macular degeneration ( ARMD). The treatment consists of an intravitreal injection of Avastin ( which regresses new vessels). Visual recovery has been found to be substantial with this injection.Repeat doses may be needed depending on the response.

Thanks and best wishes
