Question:
Can retinal surgery result in a bleed in the eye? What can be done to stop the bleed?

Answer:
On rare occasions, there can be bleeding associated with retinal surgery. The retina itself is a very vascularized tissue, so any manipulation can result in bleeding. Fortunately, the bleeding can be controlled in most cases.
