    Description
    Valsalva retinopathy is a specific form of retinopathy characterized by pre-retinal hemorrhages secondary to raised intrathoracic pressure. This is a 31-year-old female who had breast implant surgery and complained of low VA in her left eye since the procedure. The patient had a large subhyaloid hemorrhage and we performed Nd YAG laser restoring 20/20 vision in the 4th-day post-treatment.
