Vitrectomy

Macular Hole is a tiny tear in the macula that is located in the center of the eye’s light-sensitive tissue. This results in blurred and distorted vision.

Vitrectomy is the most common technique used to treat macular holes. This procedure includes the removal of vitreous from the eyes and replacing it with a saline-like solution. Vitreous is the clear, jelly-like substance that fills the inside of the eye.

More Information on Vitrectomy

Indication

Vitrectomy may be recommended to repair or prevent:

  • Vitreous hemorrhage - In this case, the doctor generally waits for a few months for the blood to clear from the vitreous
  • Retinal detachment
  • Macular Pucker
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Loss of vision for fine details (Macular Holes)

The doctor will recommend to stop consuming blood thinners, at least 5 days before the surgery.

During-Procedure

The surgery is performed by an experienced opthalmologist, uncer local or general anesthesia. It may last from an hour to several hours, depending on the case.

Vitrectomy is a minimal invasive surgery that involves minute incisions in the white part of the eye (called sclera). The doctor then removes any debris or scar tissue that may be causing obstruction in vision.

The doctor may inject a air bubble that will help keep the retina is place or the doctor may inject a special liquid substance – which may be later removed through another surgery.

Post-Procedure

Generally, the patient is discharged in a day.

The doctor may recommend:

  • Wearing an eye patch for a short duration
  • Using eye drops
  • If a gas bubble was placed in the eye, then the patient is advised to lie down in a special position
  • Until gas bubble dissolves, avoid taking planes for transport

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Poor vision
  • Retinal detachment
  • Early cataract formation
