Recent observations have found that premacular hemorrhage in Valsalva retinopathy is located under the internal limiting membrane. We confirm these findings in two case reports of Valsalva retinopathy. Visual acuity rehabilitation was obtained in the first case by conservative treatment and by draining the hemorrhage into the vitreous with Neodymium (Nd):Yag laser in the second case. We report the current therapeutic guidelines for Valsalva retinopathy, including the systematic search of autosomal dominant syndrome of retinal arterial tortuosity, a rare condition, often discovered after this type of benign macular hemorrhage.
