No: It depends on the cause and the severity of the cause. Some vitreous hemorrhages clear on their own over time. Some need urgent surgery. Ask you retina specialist.

Yes: If he seems otherwise fine, it is ok. However, after ~1 hour you should rouse him to be sure that he can reach a normal level of alertness.

Dr. Sheila Goodman
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Autopsy: The main test on the baby is an autopsy to look for birth defects or other causes for the death. The placenta is examined and cultures done. The mother may have tests for viruses and other infections, diabetes, thyroid or bleeding problems. Even with all these tests it's not unusual to not find an answer.
A 21-year-old member asked:

No one in my family has ever been diagnosed with hemochromatosis or had any of the symptoms; how could I possibly have this disease?

Dr. Jack Mutnick
Allergy and Immunology 17 years experience
Hemochromatosis: Are you sure you have the disease? Have you researched all the options and truly been diagnosed. If so, you have to understand that many people are carriers of certain genes without actually having the disease. The genes they pass on can then become active if they have a child with another carrier for that genetic disease. Sadly, disease has to start somewhere...Maybe u r the 1st in ur family.

Less floaters: Vitrectomy is performed to remove blood or repair a retinal detachment. These conditions tend to present as floaters and decreased vision. Although the vision may remain blurred for days or weeks after surgery, floaters should be gone and ultimately three vision should be better.
