Fifty cases (fifty-three eyes) of nondiabetic vitreous hemorrhage underwent vitrectomy. The visual acuity improved in 39 eyes (73.6%) postoperatively. Twenty seven eyes obtained a visual acuity of 0.05 or better. The postoperative vision was related to the etiology and macular function. Vitreous hemorrhage due to blunt trauma responded best. All of them had vision improved. Eales's disease also had a good result. 77% was improved in vision postoperatively. The main complications of surgery were recurrent vitreous hemorrhage and secondary glaucoma, especially hemolytic glaucoma (4/6). The timing for vitrectomy, degree of cutting and hemolytic glaucoma were briefly discussed.
