VITREUS SURGERY

service-3

Vitrectomy is a type of eye surgery that treats disorders of the retina and vitreous. The retina is the light-sensing tissue found lining the inside back part of the eye. Thevitreous is the clear, jelly-like substance that fills the inside of the eye. The vitreous is removed during vitrectomy surgery and usually replaced by a saline-type solution.

Why do you need a vitrectomy?

  • Diabetic retinopathy, where there is bleeding and scar tissue
  • Retinal detachments
  • Wrinkling of the retina (macular pucker)
  • Macular hole (partial loss of vision for fine details)
  • Certain problems after cataract surgery
  • Infection inside the eye
  • Severe eye injury

Vitrectomy surgery can often improve or stabilize your vision. The operation removes any blood or debris (from infection or inflammation) that may be blocking or blurring light as it focuses on the retina. Vitrectomy surgery removes scar tissue that can displace, wrinkle or tear the retina. Vision is poor if the retina is not in its normal position. A foreign object may be stuck inside the eye as the result of an injury. Most foreign objects will damage vision if they are not removed.
