Learn How a Vitrectomy Can Restore Your Ocular Health
Diabetic retinopathy is caused by prolonged elevated blood sugar levels. The condition can damage blood vessels in the eye, causing leakage and resulting in vision loss or, in some cases, blindness. In certain cases, vitrectomy may be recommended. This procedure involves the removal of the soft vitreous gel inside the eye, which is immediately replaced to maintain intraocular pressure. Our highly trained retina specialist, Dr. Sean Lalin, can evaluate your candidacy for the procedure and, if needed, perform a vitrectomy at our Morristown practice.
