Vitrectomy surgery and aftercare


This booklet is designed to help you understand what vitrectomy surgery entails and explain the care that is needed afterwards. This information will help you to decide whether to proceed. You might want to discuss it with a relative or carer. Before your operation, you will be asked to sign a consent form, so it is important that you understand this booklet before you decide to go ahead with surgery.


Because of the length of this booklet, it is available as a digital download only
