Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

It is very likely that your vitreous hemorrhage (extravasation, or leakage, of blood into the areas in and around the vitreous humor of the eye) and macular pucker (scar tissue that has formed on the eye's macula, which is located in the center of the eye's retina) could be as a result of trauma given the notion of injury that you had. Other causes that need to be looked into are diabetic retinopathy (but requires that you need to have been a long-term diabetic patient and screening might be necessary), retinal tear or detachment, age-related macular degeneration and others. You need to consult an ophthalmologist or optomitrist who can give you adequate treatment. Treatment mostly depends on the cause of the hemorrhage. Laser treatment or cryotherapy for retinal tear are the treatments of choice.

Hope this helps

Thanks for updating,

Then it is clear that the cause of your vitreous hemorrhage is traumatic. The opthalmologist will be the one to decide which treatment option is best for you.

Do you have any further questions?

Hope you are satisfied.
