RETINA

How is a vitrectomy performed?
Vitrectomy is typically done in an operating room using local anesthesia. The surgery is performed using an operating microscope to allow a very detailed view of the retina. Tiny openings are created in the white part of the eye (sclera). Specialized micro-instruments are inserted into the vitreous gel through the openings in the sclera and the vitreous gel is cut out (figure 2). Other micro-instruments can be used to remove scar tissue and apply laser to the retina. Specialized saline, gas or silicone oil is injected into the eye to replace the vitreous gel at the end of the surgical procedure.

 

When is a vitrectomy recommended?
There are many different diseases that can be treated using vitrectomy. Some of the more common conditions that are treated include retinal detachments, diabetic retinopathy, macular hole, complications from cataract surgery and infections inside the eye.
