Vitrectomy Surgery In Guwahati​

If you are experiencing difficulty in reading or seeing clearly because of a detached retina, or if you have any other vision problems, the best option may be a vitrectomy. Vitrectomy is an operation to remove the vitreous body and replace it with either clear plastic or gas (oxygen) filled fluid. This surgery can be done as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia in most cases.

There are several types of vitrectomy procedures but the most common is called “retinal detachment.” When this occurs, the retina separates from the back of your eye and can no longer function properly. The detached retina can cause blurred vision and double vision. In some cases, a vitrectomy can be the only treatment for these problems.

The procedure begins by making an incision in your eye and removing the dilated pupil with a small instrument called an iridectomy scissors. Once the pupil is removed, the surgeon uses a special microscope to see inside your eye. The surgeon then cuts away any loose material around the detached retina and replaces it with clear fluid or gas bubbles. Finally, the incision is closed with stitches.

Vitrectomy surgery is often successful in restoring clear vision and preventing further deterioration of your vision. If you are considering this type of surgery, it is important to discuss your options with a doctor in Guwahati who is experienced in performing this type of procedure.

Types of Vitrectomy

Types of vitrectomy include pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV), and endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach. 

PPV is the most common type of vitrectomy and is performed through a small incision in the lower eyelid. 

TSV is a less invasive surgery that uses small cuts to create an opening in the upper lid, through which a laser is used to cut the retina. The surgeon then inserts a telescope into the eye to view the retina. 

Endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach is an alternative surgical procedure that uses tiny camera tips called video-assisted puncture approaches to enter and examine the eye without making any incisions. This type of surgery may be more comfortable for some patients because there are fewer post-surgical procedures required.

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.
