This procedure involves the removal of the gel-like fluid (vitreous) inside your eyes which is pulling on the retina with the use of specially designed instruments.
The retinal specialists at Waverley Private Hospital conduct vitrectomies using the latest medical systems which enable heightened control, stability and efficiency, ensuring they can deliver surgical excellence. The addition of this technology ensures patients in Eastern Melbourne can have their surgery locally, rather than having to travel to the city.
The procedure is performed under a local or general anaesthetic. You may need to stay overnight in hospital.
