Vitrectomy

Some eye conditions require repair or removal of material from within the eye; e.g., hemorrhages, macular membranes, floaters, etc. Very small instruments are temporarily placed in the eye. These instruments allow the physician to perform the necessary tasks to allow your vision to improve. This procedure is generally performed in an outpatient hospital setting. After a short recovery time, patients are able to go home and are commonly followed up in the office the next day.
