Vitreous Haemorrhage: Causes And Treatment

Vitreous hemorrhage is a condition where the bleeding occurs in the jelly-like filling of the back part of the eye. This substance is known as vitreous humor which helps the eye to keep its shape and is normally clear, allowing the light into the eyes t pass through the retina.

The leaked blood in the conditions mostly comes from blood vessels at the back of the eye which happens when the blood vessels have been damaged like by trauma or are fragile due to the eye diseases related to diabetes.

The clearer the vitreous humor is, the clearer you can see and if it is clouded or filled with blood, vision impairment can occur. This impairment can vary from floaters and cloudiness of the vision through to the completely dark or reddish tinge. The hemorrhage can cause floaters, hazy or dull vision, or complete loss of vision.
