Vitrectomy surgery is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the vitreous gel, a clear, jelly-like substance that fills the space between the lens and the retina in the eye. The surgery is typically performed to treat conditions that affect the retina, such as retinal detachment, macular hole, and diabetic retinopathy.
Vitrectomy surgery is typically recommended for individuals who have a serious eye condition that is not responding to other treatments. It may also be recommended for individuals who have experienced trauma to the eye or who have developed complications after a previous eye surgery.
