A simple method for removal of particles from the retinal surface during vitrectomy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Removal of particulate materials from the retinal surface is somewhat difficult during small gauge vitrectomy. Simple injection of balanced salt solution into the vitreous cavity in a controlled manner using a connector tubing between the syringe and needle can produce enough turbulence to float the deposited material and remove it.
