Our Patients Experience


Vitrectomy surgery involves the removal of some or all of the vitreous humour or fluid from the eye and its replacement. The treatment is considered to be quite successful, and it is frequently performed in conjunction with other eye surgeries.

Vitrectomy treatments are commonly performed to enable surgeons access to the back of the eye during retinal surgery. It's also used to drain vitreous fluid that has turned cloudy or bloody, or is clogged with floaters or tissue clumps.

Common reasons for a vitrectomy surgery, and other surgeries associated with it include:

  • bleeding inside of the eye
  • eye infections
  • major eye trauma or injury
  • problems after cataract (cloudy lens) surgery
  • vitreous floaters or tiny bits of tissue in the vitreous fluid
  • damaged retinal tissue or scar tissue on the retina
  • injury from a dislodged, misplaced, or infected intraocular lens (IOL)
  • detached retina where the retina becomes loose and moves around the eye
  • trauma or injury that occurs during cornea, cataract, or glaucoma surgery
  • diabetic retinopathy when the retina has been damaged by long periods of uncontrolled diabetes
  • macular degeneration or a macular hole where there is a small hole, tear, or defect in the macula or central tissue of the retina
  • swelling of the central retinal tissue
  • swelling of the eye

Types of Vitrectomy

  • Posterior Pars Plana Vitrectomy: A posterior or pars plana vitrectomy is used to treat illnesses of the posterior portion of the eye.
  • Anterior Vitrectomy: The vitreous gel enters the anterior (front) chamber of the eye through the pupil in rare situations. An anterior vitrectomy may be performed to reduce the likelihood of future difficulties caused by leaking vitreous gel and to facilitate visual recovery.

The goals of surgery are:

  • To treat the pathology (abnormal condition) causing visual loss
  • To reduce the likelihood of recurrence
  • To minimize the risk of complications

Vitrectomy alone cures only a few disorders. At least one extra procedure is usually linked with vitrectomies.

Vitrectomy is sometimes paired with scleral buckling, a surgery that involves stitching a piece of silicone sponge, rubber, or semi-hard plastic onto the sclera or placing a band around the eye to reduce retinal traction in eyes with retinal detachment. It can be difficult to perform vitrectomy in eyes that have been damaged by trauma or in critically preterm newborns with retinopathy of prematurity.

Am I a good Candidate?

You may be recommended vitrectomy if you experience the following conditions:

  • Vision-blocking vitreous opacity (clouding)
  • Conditions caused by abnormal pulling on the retina
  • Conditions needing retinal or other eye surgery
  • To diagnose a vitreoretinal condition (diagnostic vitrectomy)
  • When placing a therapeutic device or drug delivery

Questions to Ask

We at IndiCure completely understand your concerns and it is always our endeavor to provide the best outcome for every patient. Following is the list of questions you must ask before you embark on your journey for vitrectomy with retinal detachment in India.

  • Is it time for vitrectomy with retinal detachment?
  • Is the surgeon board certified?
  • How experienced is the Surgeon?
  • Which language does the surgeon speak?
  • Is the surgery done in a well-equipped facility?
  • Can you give me any information on outcomes and complication rates?
  • How much pain can I expect, and how will it be managed in the hospital and after I go home?
  • What surgical option is recommended for me?
  • What about the risks involved?
  • Does the surgeon use a certified anesthetist?
  • How long will the recovery period be?


Prepare to answer questions about your:

  • Medical history and exams
  • Previous surgeries
  • Current medication review
  • History of smoking, drugs, or alcohol
Question to Ask

Surgical Procedure

Step 1

Three little holes (ports) are drilled into the white (sclera) of your eye to begin the procedure. The first permits a continuous flow of fluid into your eye, known as a 'infusion.' The second port is for inserting a specific fibre-optic 'light pipe' to offer illumination to your eye, while the third is for all other tools that require access to the eye during the surgery, such as a 'cutter' for vitreous removal.

Step 2

After that, cryotherapy will be used. The fluid in your eye will then be replaced with air, and you may hear a whistling sound as this occurs. At the end of the operation, this air will be replaced with a gas, which is commonly C3F8 or SF6.

Step 3

To offer a protective covering, a pad and shield will be placed over your eye at the conclusion of the operation.


The results are gratifying after the surgery. Advances in instrumentation, techniques, and understanding of diseases of the vitreous and retina have made vitrectomy quite successful. Surgery for diseases that were once incurable, such as macular hole, is now routinely performed with excellent results.


Vitrectomy operations are frequently performed in conjunction with other eye surgeries, therefore recovery times and recommendations vary.

Driving, reading, and exercise are all things that should be avoided for a few days after the surgery.

To assist the eyes heal properly, some people will be advised to rest face down for a period of time. Eye drops are frequently administered to aid in the prevention of infection and the reduction of irritation. The overall recuperation time for vitrectomy surgery is usually between 4 and 6 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Vitrectomy surgery is a safe and successful technique with few serious consequences. Most operations, according to the American Society of Retina Specialists, have a 90% success rate.

Depending on the problem being treated, a vitrectomy might take anywhere from one to several hours. It could be the first of a series of steps to resolving a problem. You can choose to stay awake and receive numbing drops or shots in your eye.

Vitrectomy is a fairly safe and successful surgery if done by a trained surgeon in a well equipped facility.

Unless the patient is in poor condition or has a serious ailment, nearly all vitrectomies are performed as outpatient procedures in a hospital or a dedicated ambulatory surgery center; they are painless and require relatively minimum anesthetic.

Through a small incision (vitrectomy), an ophthalmologist removes the vitreous and replaces it with a solution that helps your eye maintain its shape. Surgery may not be able to remove all of the floaters, and sometimes more floaters may form as a result of the procedure.

Patients who have vitreo-retinal surgery for a macular hole must lie face down for 14 days; patients with other conditions just need to lie down for 5 days.

Patient Testimonials

  • Having been home a few days now I can get my thoughts together and give my heartfelt thanks for the support and encouragement I got from IndiCure. Obviously, there was a certain amount of trepidation going to what has a reputation of being a third world country for a major operation like knee replacement, having received the type of treatment which I would think only the Royal family would receive in this country I wonder which is the third world country. From the organization arranged by your good self to absolutely first-class attention at the hospital and the service of doctors and his wonderful team all of whom spoke English, the nursing was one to one and my well-being was their only concern.

    The operation has been a complete success. I am so happy with the results. The friendliness from everyone from consultant to ancillary workers was amazing.

    Thank you,

    Ms. Beth Brown,United Kingdom
