Vitrectomy Surgery In Kochi​

In Kochi, vitrectomy surgery is one of the most popular surgeries because of its potential to restore vision and improve the overall quality of life. The procedure is a type of surgery that removes the thin, transparent film that covers the back of the eye and allows light to enter. Vitrectomy surgery is used to treat a variety of eye diseases and can restore vision in cases where other treatments have failed.

Vitrectomy surgery is performed through a small incision in the lower eyelid. Once inside the eye, the surgeon uses a special tool to remove the film. This restores vision by allowing light to pass directly into the eye. Depending on the severity of the disease, vitrectomy surgery may also replace damaged or faulty layers of tissue with newly grown tissue. This can help improve your vision significantly and enable you to return to your normal activities sooner.

Types of Vitrectomy

Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) is the most common type of vitrectomy, and it involves making a small hole in the eye’s transparent cornea and inserting a special instrument known as a pars plana vitrector through the hole. This instrument then cuts through the retina and other layers of the eye to access the macula, which is responsible for sharp vision.

Transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) is a less common type of vitrectomy that uses tiny stitches rather than sutures to hold the eyeball in its position during surgery. This approach is usually preferred when there is a high risk of scars or other complications from traditional surgical methods.

Endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach is another less common type of vitrectomy that uses an endoscope to remove the damaged eye tissue. This method is often used when there is limited space inside the eye or when other surgical methods are not possible due to health concerns.

Vitrectomy Surgery Cost In Kochi

The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Kochi can vary depending on the type of surgery required. The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Kochi 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 40,000. However, in certain cases, Endolaser is used to burn the bleeding retinal blood vessels. This increase the cost to 50000. Similarly, if the retinal detachment is high, the surgeon might use silicone oil or gas tamponade to temporary fill in the eye and settle the retina. This further increase the cost to 60000. Below is the average cost of different type of vitrectomy procedures:
