Purpose: To report the use of 25 gauge vitrectomy instrumentation to remove nonclearing anterior chamber hemorrhage. Methods: Case series. Results: The patients presented with significant, coagulated anterior chamber hemorrhage which did not clear with conservative management. The patients underwent surgical removal of the hemorrhage with the 25 gauge vitrectomy equipment via a clear–corneal approach when the intraocular pressure became elevated. The hemorrhage was completely removed by this technique without complication. Conclusions: 25 gauge vitrectomy instrumentation can be utilized via a clear–corneal approach to remove significant, coagulated anterior chamber hemorrhage.
