Vitrectomy Surgery In Howrah​

Many vitrectomy surgery procedures can be performed in Howrah. A vitrectomy is a surgical procedure that removes vitreous humor from the eye. This is done by making a small hole through the cornea and into the eye’s vitreous chamber. Then, the surgeon removes the vitreous humor. 

Several types of vitrectomy procedures can be performed in Howrah. They include:

  • A conventional vitrectomy: In a conventional vitrectomy, the surgeon makes a small hole through the cornea and into the eye’s vitreous chamber. Then, they remove the vitreous humor with a pipette or syringe.
  • A mini-vitrectomy: In a mini-vitrectomy, the surgeon makes a small hole through the cornea only halfway up to the iris. Then, they use a laser to break down the tough outer layer of the lens capsule without having to make a bigger hole in the eye. This makes it easier to remove the vitreous humor.
  • A retinal detachment surgery followed by a mini-vitrectomy: In this procedure, the surgeon performs a retinal detachment surgery to save the detached retina. Afterward, they perform a mini-vitrectomy to remove the detached retina and any remaining debris from around it.

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 vitreoretinal surgery and is performed through a small incision in the lower eyelid. 

TSV is a less invasive procedure that uses stitches to close the wound after the vitreous has been removed. 

Endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach is an alternative to TSV that uses a tiny camera and a thin tube to enter the eye through the pupil and remove the vitreous.
