The purpose of this study was to describe spontaneous vitreous hemorrhage after a session of whole-body vibration training.Method:
This is a case report of a 52-year-old man with no ophthalmic history who presented with a uniocular drop in vision.Results:
Examination showed two areas of vitreous condensations associated with vitreous hemorrhage. Localized posterior vitreous detachment was confirmed on B-scan ultrasound. No retinal breaks were identified.Conclusion:
The effects of whole-body vibration training have been well documented previously and parallels can be drawn with the effects of pneumatic drilling. Only one previous case of vitreous hemorrhage after whole-body vibration has been reported, and the authors urge vigilance in reporting this suspected association.
