Herbal Remedies for Vitreous Hemorrhage - Causes, Symptoms & Treatment

Vitreous hemorrhage is characterized with a sudden change in person's vision. It results from blocking of light moving through vitreous to the retina. The hemorrhage occurs in front of retina in the eyes's posterior section.

It may result due to aneurysm of a blood vessel, a retinal tear, a retinal detachment, trauma and a new blood vessel (neovascularization) of the eye.

Other disorders which can also result in Vitreous hemorrhage includes hypertension, sickle cell anemia, diabetes and carotid artery disease. People who are diabetic become more prone to it, as it leads to the growth of new blood vessels inside the eye.
