SURGICAL TREATMENTS
It is the main technique for surgery of retinal problems. It is a sort of endoscopy in the eye socket. Using very small tools and making very small wounds (sometimes not even stitches are needed to close) to access the eye socket. Once inside, the technique can be combined with performing laser or withdrawal of epiretinal membrane, facilitate macular hole closing or intraocularly gas exchange. Surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia with mild sedation and can be ambulatory.
