83 year old man had macular hole surgery in 1996 and his visual acuity improved to 20/50. 2 months prior to this video he had a Baerveldt Implant in his left eye and his intraocular pressure was low (less than 6). He developed a choroidal hemorrhage 3 weeks prior to this video. By the time of the surgery, the blood had liquified and drained easily. The video is sped up to double speed during the drainage of the choroidal hemorrhage parts. The patient regained 20/100 vision at the time I am posting this which is one month post-operatively. Even thought the drainage tube was ligated, his intraocular pressure was still low at about 6 mmHg after this surgery.
