We treated six eyes of submacular hematoma secondary to retinal arteriolar macroaneurysm by surgical removal of hematoma, tissue plasminogen activator and liquid perfluorocarbon. Surgery was performed within 16 days after onset. Visual acuity improved in 4 eyes including 3 eyes showing 20-40 or better. Visual acuity remained stable in 2 eyes of which one eye had macular hole before surgery and the other had organized subretinal hemorrhage involving the fuvea. Surgical removal of submacular hemorrhage may be beneficial if the patients are property selected.
