The vitreous is normally a clear, jelly-like fluid that fills the inside of the eye. Various disease states can cause the vitreous to cloud, fill with blood or even harden so that light entering the eye will be misdirected and not reach the retina properly.
Vitrectomy surgery is typically carried out in case of the retinal detachment or when blood in the vitreous humor does not clear by itself. After removing the vitreous humor from the eye, the doctor is able to correct other defects related to the eye, including retinal detachment, tears in the retina, proliferative retinopathy, vision loss and hole in retina.
Vitrectomy surgery in iran is also carried out before macular pucker is treated. It is a type of a scar tissue that may form on macula, the central portion of the retina. The patient suffering from this condition experiences blurred or distorted vision.
Typically, patients are required to stay overnight for Vitrectomy. However, it is sometimes conducted as an outpatient procedure as well. This procedure helps restore the normal vision and best results are achieved when the retinal detachment has not reached up to the macula.
Retinal Disorders Treated by Vitrectomy Surgery
Procedure for Vitrectomy
The Vitrectomy surgical procedure is performed under general or local anesthesia and is done on an outpatient basis. The operation takes about 2-4 hours to complete. Small incisions are made inside the eye so as to insert microscopic surgical tools such as a suction device, scalpels and an internal light source. The Vitreous is either replaced with an intraocular gas compound, silicone oil or a saline-based solution. This replacement helps in maintaining proper pressure in the eye and also stabilizes the natural vitreous tissue. The surgeon then uses small absorbable sutures for closing the incision site. Antibiotic drops or injections can also be used for preventing infection. Retinal Detachment Surgery or Laser Eye Therapy can also be performed along with Vitrectomy. The recovery usually takes about 2-4 weeks time.
A surgeon may use different techniques for vitrectomy surgery that include -
Silicone Oil : The silicone oil is used in place of gas so as to keep the retina attached after the surgery. The technique is beneficial when the lasting support of the retina is needed.
Scleral Buckling : This technique is used along with vitrectomy in order to produce more support to the re-attached retina.
Intraocular Gases : Either Sulfur Hexafluoride gas or Perfluropropane gas is used. This is combined with sterile air that remains in the eye for longer periods. To flatten a detached retina and also to keep it attached while healing, gas is used which is very helpful. For closing the macular holes, gas injections are used.
Endoscopy : This helps in viewing the inside of the eye through a monitor for seeing the intraocular structures. The technique is useful when the lens or cornea are cloudy and does not give a clear view under the microscope.
Lensectomy : The technique is used for removing the crystalline lens of the eye while performing vitrectomy surgery.
Microsurgical Instruments : Forceps, picks and scissors are the three microsurgical instruments that are used for manipulating intraocular structures.
Vitrectomies have been commonly performed and perfected for over 30 years. However, certain risks do exist. They include:
development of glaucoma (increased pressure in eye)
cataract formation or progression
bleeding and/or infection inside or outside of eye
red or painful eye
loss of depth perception, blurring of vision, double vision, or blindness
swelling of layer under the retina (choroidal effusion)
change in focus, requiring new spectacle lenses (refractive changes)
wrinkling of retina (macular pucker)
swelling of the center of retina (cystoid macular edema)
loss of night vision or distortion of vision
loss of eye (extremely rare)
need for additional treatment and/or surgery
Retinal detachment during or after the procedure is the most common risk. Dr. Deupree is prepared for this to happen and can repair the detachment by inserting gas that applies pressure on the retina before completing the case. The retinal detachment will heal during the normal vitrectomy healing time, which is between 4 to 6 weeks. Normal restoration of vision can take several weeks. Physical activity will be restricted during this time to prevent complications.
