  • Choroidal Blow-Out

    Jun 29 2018 by Gareth Lema, MD, PhD

    Severe choroidal blow out caused by a suprachoroidal hemorrhage caused by a hockey ball in a young man. There was a dense VH, and ultrasound showed a possible tear in the mid-periphery. Intraoperatively, a severe choroidal rupture secondary to a suprchoroidal hemorrhage was found temporally and a separate rhegmatogenous retinal detachment was found nasally. This photo was taken after silicone oil had been removed.
