Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This report is of a highly myopic patient with valsalva-induced suprachoroidal haemorrhage in the right eye with a previous encircling buckle. The choroidal haemorrhage was diagnosed primarily by B-scan ultrasound due to vitreous haemorrhage precluding fundus examination. At follow-up, all haemorrhages resolved spontaneously, and the patient's pre-event visual acuity recovered. The rare occurrence of suprachoroidal haemorrhage as a part of valsalva-induced retinopathy, and the role of the circular scleral buckle as a risk factor is discussed.
