A 25-year-old male presents with a large, mostly dehemoglobinized submacular hemorrhage secondary to choroidal rupture after being punched in the eye. Dr. Enchun Liu performs a 23-gauge vitrectomy with subretinal tPA (tissue plasminogen activator)-assisted pneumatic displacement. At 1 week postop, the majority of the submacular hemorrhage is displaced inferiorly. By 2 months, visual acuity is 20/25.
