Vitreous Hemorrhage

A vitreous hemorrhage is a pathological condition where blood leaks into the central cavity of the eye.  It may be caused by the formation of new, abnormal blood vessels (neovascularization), trauma, vitreous detachment or retinal tear.

Additionally, hemorrhages or bleeding may be found in other areas of the eye including the choroid, beneath the hyaloid membrane, or under the conjunctiva.  Hemorrhaging can be a symptom of other existing conditions.
