Vitrectomy Surgery In Amritsar​

Vitrectomy surgery in Amritsar is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that removes the vitreous body, or jelly-like substance that fills the eye. The vitreous body can become inflamed or infected, which can lead to vision problems. Vitrectomy surgery is usually done as an outpatient procedure in a hospital setting.

After you receive anesthesia, the surgeon will make a small cut in your eye. They will then remove the vitreous body using a special tool called a vitrector. This process usually takes about 15 minutes. Afterward, you may experience some temporary vision problems, but most people recover within a few days.

Types of Vitrectomy

Pars plana vitrectomy is the most common type of vitrectomy. This procedure is performed through a small incision in the lower eyelid. A special device, called a pars plana vitrectomy scope, is used to see into the eye. The surgeon then removes any vision-threatening material from the inside of the eyeball.

Transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy is a less common technique that uses a special instrument to remove the aberration without using any stitches. This procedure is done through a small incision in the corner of each eye. 

The surgeon then uses an endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach to remove the aberration. Both PPV and TSV are considered safe and effective procedures. However, they may not be suitable for everyone. If you are considering either type of vitrectomy, your doctor will discuss your individual risks and benefits with you.
