A Vitrectomy Can Treat a Wide Range of Conditions
Receive the Treatments You Need
A vitrectomy is often the first step in treating conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment. By removing the vitreous, your doctor can address the cause of your vision issues and preserve your sight.
Improve Your Vision
When the vitreous becomes clouded, scarred, or filled with debris or blood, light can no longer reach the retina. Removing and replacing the vitreous can solve or improve the issue and allow for clearer vision.
Enhanced Precision and No Need for Sutures
The equipment used for vitrectomy surgery has vastly improved since the 1970s. Self-sealing, sutureless incisions and smaller instruments make the procedure more comfortable and reduce recovery times.
