    If you want to take a vitrectomy, it will help you get the right vision. Vitrectomy is also known as glass cutting operation. The vitrectomy is done through the observation system. The operation system is in the anterior chamber in glass body like cavity retinal, former retinal, lower intraocular space. The operation methods include vitrectomy antibiotics or foreign matter from retinal front wall or next film strip cut off. When it is necessary, it also can be associated with retinal photocoagulation, electric coagulation, condensing intraocular gas or silicone oil filling. However, after the vitrectomy, you will get the basic recovery for about a month. However, the usual three months will make you get the full recovery at the vision. During this time, you should protect your eyes carefully through the healthy diet and good rest.

    As far as I know, vitrectomy is one of the most dangerous and torturous surgeries in relation to our eyes. Sometimes, it has a lot of things to do with diabetes. From some clinical cases, it takes about 3 months or more before the patient could be recovered, it also depends on the quality of the surgery as well as what is going to be filled in your eyeballs. Good luck.


    Well, generally speaking, it will take about 3 months for your eyes to recover from the surgery. so you should be more patient about it. And then just be more careful about your eyes. For example, you need to apply the eye drops several times daily for about the first week during your surgery recovery. And it is just like the usual way, but just is careful about the irritants. And also, since your eyes are sensitive and fragile, you need more attention to them. For example, you should not expose your eye to irritants such as grime, dust and wind during the first few weeks after surgery. After the procedure, you should avoid bending over, to prevent putting extra pressure on your eye. And then heavy exercises should be avoided too.
