Vitrectomy Surgery

Frequently Asked Questions on Vitrectomy Surgery

What is Vitrectomy surgery?

Vitrectomy surgery is a specialized surgical procedure employed to address conditions that impact the vitreous and/or retina of the eye. This procedure involves the meticulous removal of the vitreous gel and its substitution with a saline solution. Vitrectomy is done in conditions like retinal detachment, vitreous hemorrhage and diabetic retinopathy

How long does the surgery take?

Typically, the duration of the surgery ranges from one to two hours, although with latest technology it lasts for 15 minutes to an hour.

Is vitrectomy surgery painful?

Vitrectomy surgery is conducted under local anesthesia, ensuring that patients do not experience any pain throughout the procedure. Stitches are not applied in this procedure. This ensures total patient comfort following the procedure. However, it is normal to encounter slight discomfort on the day of surgery after anesthesia wears out. 

What are the risks and benefits of vitrectomy surgery?

Like any surgical procedure, vitrectomy surgery entails certain risks such as infection, bleeding, and potential damage to the retina. Nevertheless, it is important to note that serious complications are uncommon with latest advances in surgery.  At Advanced Retina Care, we prioritize the well-being of every patient, and we take great pride in maintaining an impeccable track record without any reported complications. The benefits of early surgery in diabetic patients are far more than any risk. Blindness can be prevented when surgery is done on time. 

How long does it take to recover from vitrectomy surgery?

Most cases recover within a day, especially if there is no post-operative bleed. Cases requiring silicone oil injection can take up to a month for visual recovery. In general, most patients can resume their regular activities within a week following the surgery.

Will I need to wear an eye patch after the surgery?

Following the surgery, all patients have a patch applied to the eye until the anesthesia effect wears off. This precautionary measure aids in safeguarding the eye and facilitating the healing process.

Can vitrectomy surgery be performed on both eyes at once?

Performing vitrectomy surgery simultaneously on both eyes is generally not advised due to the heightened potential for complications. However, in certain cases where patients necessitate surgery on both eyes, the procedures will be conducted separately to minimize risks and optimize outcomes.

Will I need to have follow-up appointments after the surgery?

Indeed, follow-up appointments are essential to monitor the healing progress and verify the success of the surgery. The frequency of these appointments will be determined based on the unique circumstances of each patient’s case.
