Overview
Vitrectomy is one of the most important ocular surgeries. It can be used for patients with diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, ocular trauma, and endophthalmitis. Generally, vitrectomy is performed with microscope assistant. However, in some situations such as corneal opacity and synechia of pupil, it can't be done due to optic media opacity. Endoscope-assisted vitrectomy may be helpful for those patients who can't be treated by traditional vitrectomy. It can also be used for patients with uncontrolled high intraocular pressure. It will improve life quality of those patients, significantly. Endoscope-assisted vitrectomy is used in many countries including USA, Japan, Korea and some in the Europe. We are the first and the only one who have the ability to do Endoscope-assisted vitrectomy in Taiwan.
