Vitrectomy surgery involves removing the vitreous gel inside the eye and replacing it with special fluid. The vitreous gel is located in the back part of the eye where the retina is located. This highly delicate surgery is necessary to repair retinal problems such as macular puckers, macular holes, vitreal hemorrhages, and some retinal detachments. Removing the vitreous is not harmful to the eye.
