Five patients with nonclearing vitreous hemorrhage associated with subarachnoid or subdural hemorrhages (Terson's syndrome) underwent pars plana vitrectomy. All six eyes of the five patients had postoperatively improved visual acuity and visual function. We recommended treating this rare syndrome with vitrectomy after careful preoperative ophthalmologic examination and a minimum observation period of six months to one year.
