Sub-macular hemorrhage can lead to permanent vision loss by photoreceptor damage if not treated timely. Various modes of treatments are described in current published literature. We herein report a case of a young male with sub-macular bleed post blunt trauma treated successfully with an early intervention in form of pneumatic displacement with expansible gas followed with strict prone positioning.
