Farah Abu Bakar, Adil Hussein and Noram Mat Saad

Purpose: To report a case of right eye massive suprachoroidal haemorrhage complicating phacoemulsification, which was treated successfully with drainage sclerotomy and pars plana vitrectomy. Results: A 79-y old lady’s right eye vision improved from light perception to 6/60 following vitreoretinal surgery for massive suprachoroidal haemorrhage from phacoemulsification. Conclusion: A relatively good visual outcome may be achieved with proper pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative management of suprachoroidal haemorrhage.
