Vitreoretinal Procedures

The term "retina procedure" typically refers to a medical procedure performed on the retina, which is the light-sensitive tissue located at the back of the eye. The retina is responsible for capturing and processing visual information, which is then transmitted to the brain via the optic nerve.

There are several different types of retina procedures, depending on the specific condition or issue being addressed. Some common retina procedures include:

Retinal Surgery

This may involve repairing a detached retina, removing scar tissue, or treating conditions like diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration.

Retinal Laser Surgery

This procedure uses laser technology to treat various retinal conditions, including diabetic retinopathy, retinal tears, and certain types of glaucoma.


A vitrectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the vitreous humor (the gel-like substance in the eye) and replace it with a clear solution. It is often done to address issues within the vitreous or to access and treat problems in the retina.
