Vitrectomy Surgery In Tumkur​

If you are experiencing poor vision caused by a detached retina, or if you have a large, pus-filled cyst on your retinal surface, then vitrectomy surgery may be the right treatment for you. Vitrectomy is a procedure that involves removing the vitreous body (the clear gel that fills the eye) and restoring good vision. Vitrectomy is most often used to treat macular degeneration, but can also be used to remove other types of retinal abnormalities.

There are many different types of vitrectomy procedures, so please speak with your doctor about which would be best for you. In general, however, vitrectomy surgery is a safe and effective treatment for many conditions related to vision impairment. If you are considering vitrectomy surgery as a possible treatment for your condition, please consult with your doctor in Tumkur today.

Types of Vitrectomy

Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), also known as a “traditional” vitrectomy, is the most common type of vitrectomy. A surgeon performs PPV through a small incision in the lower eyelid. This approach is typically used when the eye is stable and there is minimal damage to the nearby areas.

Transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) uses a special cutting device that removes the eyeball without using stitches. This technique is ideal for eyes that are unstable or have major damage around the perimeter of the lens. TSV is less invasive than PPV and can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation.

Endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach uses a tiny telescope to view and remove the lens from inside of the eye without requiring open surgery. This method is often used when there is significant damage to surrounding tissues or when surgery would be difficult or impossible due to location constraints.

Vitrectomy Surgery Cost In Tumkur

The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Tumkur can vary depending on the type of surgery required. The cost of vitrectomy surgery in Tumkur 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 55,000. 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:

Happy Patients from Tumkur after Vitrectomy

Rishi Sachdeva

“My family doctor recommended this surgery and I am so glad he did. When the surgeon came to show me what the procedure would involve, he told me it was quite a long procedure but that they would give me an eye patch and let me go home in less than an hour. When my operation was finished, the doctors were all very nice. They even let my mom stay with me for a little while.”

– Rishi (Tumkur)
