Terson syndrome is a vitreous hemorrhage that occurs after intracranial hemorrhages (subarachnoid or subdural) and generally visual deficit or low vision is observed.

Visual acuity of the patient was 0.1 prior to the operation, but 1 month postoperatively, it reached 0.7. There was no complication during the surgery and at postoperative follow-up.
