Vitrectomy Surgery In Phagwara​

There are certain types of vitrectomy surgery that are used to treat various eye diseases. In phagwara, vitrectomy surgery is mainly used to treat macular degeneration. This type of surgery removes the outer layer of the onion-like structure in the eye called the macula. 

Macular degeneration affects the ability to see clearly in the center or middle part of the vision known as central vision. It is a common condition that can lead to blindness. There are many different treatments for macular degeneration, but vitrectomy is one of the most common. 

The surgery involves removing the damaged area of the macula with a thin telescope-like tube called a vitreous cutter. This procedure usually restores good vision for most patients.

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 vitrectomy and is simply a surgical procedure in which the eye’s surface is cut and the clear, jelly-like vitreous removed.

TSV involves using special instruments to carefully suture the area around the inner eye’s retina without puncturing it.

The endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach uses a small microscope to view the inside of the eye through small incisions made in the eyelid, directly into the vitreous.
