Vitrectomy Surgery In Mangalore​

In Mangalore, vitrectomy surgery is a popular option to treat certain types of eye diseases. The surgery uses a surgical instrument called a vitrector to remove a thin layer of tissue from the inside of the eye. This can help improve or correct the condition of the eye.

Vitrectomy surgery is often used to treat conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. It can also be used to remove blood vessels that have become blocked in the eyes.

There are several different ways that vitrectomy surgery can be performed. In some cases, the vitrector is inserted through a small incision on the side of the eye. In other cases, the vitrector is inserted through an open wound in the front of the eye.

Types of Vitrectomy

The most common type of vitrectomy is the pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), which is performed through a small incision in the lower lids. 

The transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) is a less common procedure that uses tiny openings made in the upper and lower lids to allow direct access to the eye’s vitreous cavity. 

The endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach uses an instrument called an argon laser to create a hole directly through the retinas and into the vitreous cavity.
