  • Is there surgery for bleeding under the macula?


    Is there surgery for hemorrhaging (bleeding) under the macula resulting in scar tissue?


    While there is surgery and other options to treat an acute sub-macular hemorrhage, once scarring develops the options are limited. Research into sub-macular scar tissue removal has not shown it provides any benefit, and so it is not typically performed. But each case is unique and a question like this is best suited for your retina specialist. They can perform a comprehensive examination and discuss options tailored to your specific needs.
