Vitrectomy is a type of eye surgery that involves the removal of part of the vitreous gel in the eye.The vitreous gel can become cloudy or cause floaters, and this surgery helps to clear the vision.
The surgery is performed by creating tiny incisions in the eye and removing the vitreous gel with a specialized instrument.During the procedure, the vitreous gel is replaced with saline solution to help maintain the eye’s shape and pressure.
After the surgery, the patient may experience some discomfort, but this should subside over time as the eye heals.The recovery time for vitrectomy is typically between 3-4 weeks. During this time, vision may be blurry and the eye may be sensitive to light.
The success rate of vitrectomy is generally high, and most patients experience improved vision after the procedure.
