We reported the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) findings of a subinternal limiting membrane hemorrhage in the macula in one patient with Valsalva retinopathy and in one patient with macroaneurysm before and after neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser membranotomy. Within 1 week, the Nd:YAG laser treatment facilitated rapid absorption of the hemorrhage in both patients. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography was helpful before laser treatment to evaluate the exact location of the blood and after laser treatment to confirm the amount and location of residual hemorrhage, which was hard to confirm by only indirect ophthalmoscopy.
