Vitrectomy procedure is a surgical intervention in which the gel in the middle of the eye, called vitreous humor, is removed. Doing this enables the doctor to have better access to the back of the eye and in turn, correct problems with the retina.
Vitrectomy surgery is typically carried out in case of the retinal detachment or when blood in the vitreous humor does not clear by itself. After removing the vitreous humor from the eye, the doctor is able to correct other defects related to the eye, including retinal detachment, tears in the retina, proliferative retinopathy, vision loss and hole in retina.
Vitrectomy is also carried out before macular pucker is treated. It is a type of a scar tissue that may form on macula, the central portion of the retina. The patient suffering from this condition experiences blurred or distorted vision.
Typically, patients are required to stay overnight for Vitrectomy. However, it is sometimes conducted as an outpatient procedure as well. This procedure helps restore the normal vision and best results are achieved when the retinal detachment has not reached up to the macula.
