There are a number of conditions which stimulate neovascularisation of the retina with subsequent complications such as vitreous haemorrhage and tractional retinal detachment from pathological separation of the vitreous. The most common is severe diabetic retinopathy but also retinal vein occlusion, sickle-cell retinopathy and retinal vasculitis.
