Session Title: RETINA

Session Time:      -

Choroidal haemorrhage is a sight-threatening compli- cation requiring prompt surgical management. It can occur as a complication of ocular surgery or trauma and may lead to high intraocular pressure with associ- ated pain and inflammation. Surgical drainage is indicated in patients with choroidal detachment, raised intraocular pressure, retinal apposition, and anterior chamber flattening. This film will describe the presentation, risk factors and imaging modalities of choroidal haemorrhage, surgical technique and out- comes with timely intervention.
