Vitrectomy Surgery In Ahmednagar​

In Ahmednagar, vitrectomy surgery is a major surgery used to remove cataracts. The surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist and is an outpatient procedure. It can be done on an individual or a group of eyes.

The patient is usually placed under general anesthesia and the eyes are irrigated with sterile saline to clean them. A small incision is then made in the lower eyelid and the eye’s lens is removed using a surgical microscope. The surface area around the lens is then examined to check for any other abnormalities that could predispose the person to develop cataracts in the future.

If there are any such defects, they are corrected before the lens is removed. After the lens has been removed, the incision is closed with stitches or a bandage. Recovery time for this type of surgery is typically about two weeks, though it may take up to four weeks for complete healing.

Types of Vitrectomy

There are three main types of vitrectomy: pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV), and endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach. 

PPV is the most common type of vitrectomy, performed as day surgery. 

TSV is a less common procedure that is done under local anesthesia with a shorter recovery time. 

Endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach is the rarest type of vitrectomy, and it is usually only performed when other methods are not possible or when conditions such as macular edema or glaucoma require an immediate surgical solution.

Vitrectomy Surgery Cost In Ahmednagar

The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Ahmednagar can vary depending on the type of surgery required. The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Ahmednagar varies between ₹20,000 to ₹80,000.
