Vitrectomy Surgery In Belgaum​

Belgaum is a city in the state of Karnataka, southern India. The city has a population of over 1.5 million people and is the administrative headquarters of the Belgaum district. Vitrectomy surgery is a common procedure performed in Belgaum, as it is a major city in Karnataka with a lot of people who suffer from eye diseases.

The vitreous is a clear jelly-like substance that fills the inside of the eye. It helps focus light on the retina and keeps the eyeball flexible. In some cases, however, the vitreous can become cloudy or full of fluid due to disease or injury. When this happens, it can cause vision problems and can even lead to blindness.

Vitrectomy surgery is a procedure used to remove the cloudy or full vitreous material from the eyes. This can help restore vision in cases where the vitreous has become damaged or affected by disease or injury. In most cases, vitrectomy surgery is done as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. After the surgery, patients typically stay overnight in the hospital for observation.

Types of Vitrectomy

There are three 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 in approximately two-thirds of cases. 

TSV is a more advanced technique that is used in cases where PPV is not possible or desired due to strict anatomic limitations or significant retinal detachment. 

The endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach is used in rare cases when direct visualization of the retina through the eye’s pupil is necessary.

Vitrectomy Surgery Cost In Belgaum

The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Belgaum can vary depending on the type of surgery required. The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Belgaum varies between ₹20,000 to ₹80,000. Anterior Vitrectomy in front portion of the eye costs around 24000. Simple posterior vitrectomy involves suction / removal of the vitreous gel or blood from the back portion of the eye and costs around 55,000. However, in certain cases, Endolaser is used to burn the bleeding retinal blood vessels.
