• How can I ensure blood is reabsorbed after a hemorrhage?


    I’m 72 and had a hemorrhage (bleeding) behind my macula, which caused a blind spot in my eye. How can I make the blood reabsorb back into my system so that I can retain some of my vision? I cannot read due to the blind spot. I am doing the injections into my eye now but wonder if healing to regain reading vision is possible.


    The best treatment for reabsorbing the blood and returning to reading vision will be injections of anti-VEGF drugs. There are no other treatments that have demonstrated significant benefit. Unfortunately, while this treatment is highly effective at preventing further vision loss, there are a limited percentage of patients that regain reading vision.
