Vitrectomy in Izmir, Turkey

Safe and Affordable Vitrectomy in Turkey


Your doctor may recommend vitrectomy to treat disorders of the retina and vitreous. Turkey is one of the best destinations to visit when it comes to complex retinal surgeries, as it should be dealt with by doctors who specialize in this field!


Vitrectomy is surgery to remove some or all of the vitreous humor from the eye. In general, this surgery can restore vision that is lost as a result of traction retinal detachment and may help prevent further detachment. But the results tend to be better when the detachment has not affected the center of the retina (macula).

One of the main uses of vitrectomy is to remove blood from the middle of the eye, a condition called vitreous hemorrhage. Vitrectomy may require an overnight hospital stay. But it may sometimes be done as outpatient surgery. The surgery lasts 2 to 3 hours. Your eye doctor will determine if the surgery can be done with local or general anesthesia.


Conditions which can benefit from vitrectomy include:

  • Retinal detachment
  • Macular hole / pucker
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Macular holes
  • Vitreous hemorrhage
  • Vitreous floaters
  • Certain problems after cataract surgery
  • Infection inside the eye
  • Severe eye injury


During surgery, your doctor will do one or more of the following:

  • Remove all cloudy vitreous
  • Remove any scar tissue present, attempting to return the retina to its normal position
  • Treat foreign objects that might be in the eye
  • Place an air or gas bubble in the eye to help the retina remain in its proper position. The bubble will slowly disappear on its own.
  • Inject a special fluid (like silicone oil) that is later removed from the eye with another surgery.
