What happens with a retinal hemorrhage?

  • The blood vessels in your retina are bulging or you suffer from an eye problem like macular degeneration.
  • You have underlying medical conditions like high blood pressure, leukemia, or diabetes.
  • You were participating in outdoor activities that involved a quick change in air pressure. 
  • You suffered from a head trauma

  • Gradually becoming blind
  • Seeing floaters
  • Having a hazy or distorted vision
  • Having a red tint to your vision
  • Having vision blurriness


If I come into your office, how would you diagnose my retinal hemorrhage?

To diagnose your retinal hemorrhage, there are a few things we might do. A vision test is one of the first things we may do to see how well your vision is doing. Running a blood test can also show any underlying conditions you may have that could have caused a retinal hemorrhage. A fluorescein angiography, a test that injects dye into a vein in your arm, can also be used to help show how the inside of your eye looks.
