Vitrectomy

Vitrectomy is a type of operation in which a doctor removes the vitreous, a jelly-like fluid inside the eye, and replaces it with a saline solution. It is often done as part of other eye surgeries.

What is vitrectomy?

For people to see, light has to pass through the eye and reach retina. Then it sends the information to our brain. Various diseases can cause fluid in the vitreous to cloud, fill with blood or debris, harden, or scar. This can keep light from reaching the retina properly and cause vision trouble. Removing and replacing the fluid may solve or improve the problem. This procedure is the treatment of many problems such as retinal detachment or diabetic retinopathy.

• Patients with cloudy vision due to a problem in vitreous

The ophthalmologist will tell the patient, if there are specific things that patient needs to do to prepare. He/she will take medical history from the patient.
