To discuss diagnostic strategies and management options in cases with suspected valsalva maculopathy (VM), to optimize visual outcome. We describe six cases with suspected VM. The preretinal hemorrhage resolved spontaneously in four out of six patients, without any intervention. One patient underwent neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet hyaloidotomy and the other proceeded to have a vitrectomy for persistent diffuse vitreous hemorrhage. Considering the evidence available and the outcomes of our patients, we have devised a treatment algorithm for treating VM, which is elaborated in this article.
