    Description
    Severe choroidal blow out caused by a suprachoroidal hemorrhage. 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. The initial cause of injury was from a hockey ball in a young man.
