Pars Plana Vitrectomy (PPV)

Retinal detachment is a serious eye condition that occurs when the retina (a light-sensitive layer of tissue at the back of the eye) is pulled away from its normal position. This can happen if the jelly-like substance that fills the centre of your eye breaks loose and pushes against the retina. If not treated promptly, retinal detachment can cause blindness.

Retinal detachment surgery is a highly successful procedure in which the retina is reattached to the back of the eye. In cases where there are also breaks or holes in the retina, these will be sealed during surgery as well.

Indication of retinal detachment surgery

If you do not treat a detached retina, you could quickly and permanently lose your sight. Retinal detachment surgery Is performed to attach the detached retina due to various reasons. In cases where there are also breaks or holes in the retina, these will be sealed during surgery as well. Timely intervention is mandatory to restore the vision and to avoid permanent visual loss and softened eyeball.
