    It is abnormal. And you shall contact your eye doctor immediately. In common, the purpose of vitrectomy is to improve vision acuity for people who have severe vitreous hemorrhage. And the vitrectomy is aim to decreases the risk of severe bleeding. However, it is risks to take vitrectomy. And further bleeding into the vitreous gel is one of their risks. So, you shall told your surgeon as soon as possible. Besides, taking Vitrectomy have the risks of retinal detachment, infection inside of the eyes or corneal edema etc. Hope you will be fine.
