Ng:YAG laser hyaloidotomy for premacular hemorrhage in both eyes in a patient with acute myeloblastic leukemia
Premacular hemorrhage occurs in various disorders and causes sudden unilateral or bilateral visual impairment. One of the well-established techniques to treat this condition is Ng:YAG laser hyaloidotomy. Below we report a case of premacular hemorrhage in the right and left eyes of a 23-year old patient with acute myeloblastic leukemia. Ng:YAG laser hyaloidotomy was successfully performed on both patient’s eyes at different puncture sites.
