Our medical doctors are Ophthalmologists (eye physicians and surgeons) who are trained to provide you with the most sophisticated eye care available. This includes diagnosis of disease of the eye which is primary to the eye itself, as well as those disorders that affect the eye as part of another disease process such as diabetes, arthritis or hypertension.
This procedure removes the vitreous humor (the thick, jelly-like fluid in the eye's rear chamber). Vitrectomy is used to treat a variety of eye problems, most commonly when the vitreous humor has grown cloudy or has filled with blood from a hemorrhage. Vitrectomy is performed in an operating room under local or general anesthesia. It usually takes one to two hours to complete.
To save time on the day of your visit, please print and fill out the registration form, policies and procedures, and patient acknowledgement in advance of your visit. Bring photo ID and insurance cards with you, and someone to drive you home if you would prefer not to drive.
Most patients are able to drive themselves home, perhaps with sunglasses. Disposable sun wear will be given to you if your eyes have been dilated.
