Fundus vitreoretinal surgery

In the last ten years, with the rapid progress of technology and microsurgical systems for fundus surgery, the safety and efficiency of fundus surgery have been significantly increased. As a result, the number of indications for operative treatment has expanded. Whether it is macular, retinal detachment surgery or surgical treatment of diabetic eye changes, if the surgery is done in time, patients can hope for an outcome that was unimaginable in the not-so-distant past, with significantly more comfortable postoperative recovery.

Indications for fundus surgery (pars plana vitrectomy)
  • Retinal detachment

    Retinal detachment is an urgent condition and involves the separation of the eye's inner membrane, which is responsible for receiving the image of the objects observed. Most often, it is a consequence of a tear on the retina resulting from degenerative changes on the fundus. It most often occurs in myopic people and following eye injuries.

  • Macular surgery

    The most common macula changes are rupture of the macula and epiretinal membrane that exert traction on the macula, deforming its structure and leading to swelling. In the case of such macular changes, which are accompanied by a significant decrease in central vision or symptoms in the form of distorted image, operative treatment is indicated.

  • Diabetic retinal pathology related surgery

    Fundus bleeding can occur in patients suffering from diabetes for many years, which usually leads to a drastic decrease in vision. Proliferative membranes and retinal detachment or macular swelling may also occur.

  • Pars plana vitrectomy

    Vitrectomy is the most frequently performed vitreoretinal surgery procedure (eye fundus surgery). It is considered one of the most technically demanding eye surgeries. It is performed under local or general anesthesia and involves making three small openings through which vitrectomy instruments are placed to remove the vitreous body.
