A vitrectomy (from the Latin vitreum – glassy, vitreous; -ectomy – removal) is a surgical procedure which removes some or all of the vitreous humour from the eye.
In most cases, a vitrectomy is a primary step to work in the deepest and most delicate structures of the human eye – the retina. In many cases, vitreoretinal surgery is the only way to save the patient’s vision.
The vitreoretinal centre at our clinic diagnoses and treats retinal and vitreous conditions. All examinations and operations are undertaken on an outpatient basis.
