What is vitrectomy?
Vitrectomy is the most widely used eye microsurgery technique for retinal diseases and trauma. At Miranza, we boast pioneering ophthalmologists who have introduced and developed it in Spain, with over 30 years’ experience.
The procedure consists of removing part or all of the vitreous humour (transparent gel that fills the eyeball) to directly manipulate the retina (membrane that covers the back of the eye) and treat the pathologies that affect this tissue.
To carry out the surgery, which we perform under local anaesthesia, the surgeon makes three tiny incisions on the outside of the eye. Through them, he introduces surgical instruments smaller than half a millimetre and, with great delicacy and precision, manipulates the retina with tweezers, scissors, lasers and lights. Supporting the skills of our ophthalmologists, at Miranza’s clinics we boast the most advanced surgical equipment and systems for visualising the structures inside the eye to achieve the best results.
