Vitrectomy Surgery In Siliguri​

Vitrectomy surgery is a type of eye surgery that removes the membrane that covers the inside of the eye. This surgery is used to treat conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. Vitrectomy surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis, and most patients are able to go home the same day.

During vitrectomy surgery, a special tool called a vitreoretinal blade is used to break open the eye’s membrane. The surgeon then uses a surgical microscope to view the inside of the eye and remove any objects that may be blocking vision. Vitreous fluid (a clear liquid that fills the interior of the eyeball) is sometimes removed during vitrectomy surgery.

Vitrectomy surgery is an important procedure for people who have glaucoma or macular degeneration. It can help them see better and improve their quality of life. If you are looking for a quality vitrectomy surgery experience, make sure to visit Mantracare one of Siliguri’s best hospital

Types of Vitrectomy

There are three types of vitrectomy: pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV), and endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach. 

PPV is the most common type of surgery and involves making a small incision in the lower eyelid and removing the vitreous by means of a blade. 

TSV is done using a tiny eye probe that is inserted through the pupil into the eye to remove the vitreous.

Epiretinal approaches use an endoscope to enter through the anterior chamber of the eye and remove the vitreous.
