Vitrectomy Surgery In Shimla​

Vitrectomy surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a telescope-like device to cut into the eye’s vitreous body and remove any obstructions or abnormalities. There are many different types of vitrectomy procedures, but all of them share the common goal of restoring optimal vision.

Vitrectomy surgery is typically performed on patients who have advanced age, cataracts, or high levels of intraocular pressure (IOP). Most people recover completely from vitrectomy surgery and can return to their regular activities within one or two days. 

If you are considering vitrectomy surgery as an option for your vision problems, be sure to discuss your options with your doctor in Shimla.

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 involves making a large incision in the eye and removing the defective lens directly. 

TSV is performed through a small incision in the eyelid and involves snipping away the excess tissue around the damaged retina using specialized surgical tools. 

Endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach is a newer technique that uses a microscope to view and remove the defective lens from inside the eye.

Vitrectomy Surgery Cost In Shimla

The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Shimla can vary depending on the type of surgery required. The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Shimla 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:
