Expert Retinal Surgery Specialist
Retinal surgery may be indicated for certain conditions diagnosed by your retinal specialist. The most common type of retinal surgery is pars plana vitrectomy (PPV or vitrectomy). Vitrectomy surgery is microscopic, involves extremely technologically advanced surgical equipment, and is usually performed under local anesthesia with some sedation. You can expect mild redness and soreness after vitrectomy surgery, but recovery is usually well tolerated with minimal pain.
