Can a vitreous hemorrhage cause flashes with or without retinal tear?

Yes depends: Yes this is possible especially if the vitreous hemorrhage is caused from a vitreous detachement which is different from a retinal detachment. Patients with a vitreous hemorrhage from a vitreous detachment should be watched to ensure they do not develop retinal detachment.
