Vitreoretinal Surgery

Vitreoretinal surgery is required to treat conditions that affect the back of the eye, these include diagnoses such as:

Retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, macular hole, macular degeneration, epiretinal membranes (macular pucker), severe eye trauma, opacities of the vitreous and complications of cataract surgery, including dislocated cataract fragments and severe infection.

Recent advances in retinal surgery have brought great benefits in the treatment of conditions that previously would have resulted in blindness.

Approximately 90% of retinal detachment cases can now be corrected with a single operation, and exciting new vitreoretinal techniques offer hope for increasingly common conditions such as macular degeneration.
