Retina Surgery Offered by Apex Eye to Patients in Cincinnati, Ohio & All Surrounding Areas
Retina surgery is the standard of care for many sight-threatening diseases and conditions involving the retina. There are several different procedures that can be performed to treat these conditions. In some cases, a high-intensity laser is used to precisely target a specific area of the retina without compromising the surrounding tissue. This painless procedure is performed while a patient is awake.
Another approach involves the removal of the vitreous gel (vitrectomy). This allows a surgeon access to the back of the eye to remove scar tissue or repair tears in the retina using a laser. The vitreous gel is then replaced with silicone oil or gas. This outpatient procedure takes one to two hours to complete.
The type of retina surgery required will depend on the type and severity of the condition. However, the objective remains the same – to prevent or stop the progression of vision loss.
