Abstract

PURPOSE:

To report a complication of dental implant surgery.

METHOD:

We examined a 44-year-old man with systemic hypertension who reported sudden loss of the central visual field in one eye that occurred during maxillar dental implant surgery.

RESULTS:

Subretinal, intraretinal, and intravitreal hemorrhages in the right eye were present on initial examination. Intraocular hemorrhage may have been caused by a Valsalva maneuver in combination with a rise of systemic blood pressure during treatment.

CONCLUSION:

Intraocular hemorrhages may occur as a complication of dental implant surgery.
