Vitrectomy Recovery Equipment
an outpatient surgery and involves the removal and replacement of the vitreous gel from the eye, and attach the retina with the help of lasers to retinal breaks and injecting gas or silicon into the eye to hold the retina in place until it seals. After surgery most people can go home after being observed for a short while.
Due to the need for posturing, consider using equipment to assist you (retinarest, summit, head rest, etc.) Your eyes are prone to infection during this period, so it is important to take your prescribed antibiotics, not get the eye wet, wash your hands, do not rub your eyes, remove any protective padding, drive, and attend your follow up appointment until discussed with your surgeon.
