Vitrectomy Surgery In Tiruchirappalli​

If you are experiencing blurred vision or other major eye problems, you may be a good candidate for vitrectomy surgery. Vitrectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the damaged vitreous gel from inside your eye. The vitreous gel is a clear, sticky substance that fills the inside of your eye and helps to keep it in place.

Vitrectomy surgery can be used to treat many different types of eye problems. It can be used to remove the cause of blurred vision, fix a detached retina, or remove a tumor or other foreign object from inside your eye.

There are many different techniques that can be used during vitrectomy surgery. Most patients undergo surgery through an incision in the center of their eyes. However, some patients may require surgery through an eyelid incision or through the side of their head.

Once the surgeon has removed the damaged vitreous gel, they will usually fill the empty space with new gel using a needle and syringe. This process is often done under general anesthesia, so you will sleep through the entire procedure. After the surgery is complete, you may experience some mild discomfort and swelling in your eye for several days. However, most patients feel good enough to return to work within a few days after vitrectomy surgery.

Types of Vitrectomy

There are several types of vitrectomy, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common type is the pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), which is performed through a small incision in the outer skin layer. PPV is often preferred because it is less invasive than other types, and it has been shown to be more effective than other methods in some cases.

Transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) uses a thin wire to close the eyelid after the vitreous has been removed. This method is less invasive than PPV, but it can be less effective because the wire may not completely seal the eye.

Endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach uses a tiny lens and an endoscope to enter the eye directly through the retina. This method is very invasive and requires special training, but it may be more effective than other methods in some cases because it allows for closer examination of the eye.
