The retina is the part of the eye that receives the light and converts it into chemical energy. The chemical energy activates nerves that conduct the messages out of the eye into the higher regions of the brain. The retina is a complex nervous structure.
Under our project complex retinal diabetic surgeries we have operated VITRECTOMY SURGERY on a 47 yr old gentleman.
He was seen at our hospital in the month of June 2020 by Dr.Krishna R Murthy. On examination he complained of diminution of vision in left eye since 8 months & gave of history of trauma to his right eye with stone 35 yrs back. Fundus examination in right eye showed total glaucomatous disc and in left eye posterior retinal detachment. (A retina detaches when the retina peels away from its underlying layer of support tissue at the back of the eye). He was advised to undergo LEFT EYE VITRECTOMY + ENDOLASER + FLUID GAS EXCHANGE + SILICONE OIL INJECTION UNDER LOCAL ANAESTHESIA.
After undergoing all preliminary investigations (physical fitness) he was posted for surgery on 20.10.2020 @ 02:15pm.
