About Vitreoretinal Surgery
Vitreoretinal surgery is a type of surgery that is performed on the retina, vitreous, and macula of the eye. This type of surgery is typically used to treat conditions such as retinal detachment, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. In India, there are several highly skilled and experienced ophthalmologists who specialize in vitreoretinal surgery.
It is typically performed on an outpatient basis, and patients can usually return home on the same day as the procedure. The recovery time will depend on the specific procedure performed, but most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a few weeks after the surgery.
Procedure of Vitreoretinal Surgery
Vitreous humor, a gel-like material in the eye that can become infected by foreign objects, is removed during vitrectomy. The most frequent foreign objects include light that passes through and distorts vision, or blood from a diabetic vitreous hemorrhage. A saline solution is injected into the eye by the retina specialist NYC after the vitreous humor is removed. While local anesthetic is an option, general anesthesia is used for the majority of surgeries. The procedure is most comfortable when performed under general anesthesia because just three tiny incisions are made in the eye to introduce the various devices and/or lasers.
Everybody's road to rehabilitation is unique as well. You can learn more about your specific recovery and dangers from your retina specialist. To avoid infection and reduce swelling as their eye heals, most patients use antiseptic and anti-inflammatory eye drops.
