Eye Institute uses the latest vitrectomy surgical techniques. This means we can perform your procedure under local anaesthetic in just an hour. You’ll then be able to return home almost straight away.
At Eye Institute, vitreoretinal surgery is highly advanced and performed by three surgeons who have significant experience in this field.
Our techniques mean that for almost all patients:
- General anaesthetic, with its risks, is not required
- Patients can go home on the day of the surgery and don’t need to stay in hospital
- No sutures are required (keyhole surgery)
- No worries – sedation provided by a specialist anaesthetist, if required
There’s no need to stay overnight for vitreoretinal surgery any more, thanks to Eye Institute’s state-of-the-art day stay facilities.
