Procedure: Macular Hole Surgery in Abu Dhabi

Surgery is needed to treat macular holes. Vitrectomy is the surgical procedure to treat macular holes. In many cases, macular hole surgery in Abu Dhabi has resulted in improved vision. 

  • The surgery is typically conducted under local anesthesia, ensuring the eye and surrounding tissues are numbed for your comfort.  


  • Through small incisions in the eye, a delicate probe is introduced to carefully remove the vitreous gel, a crucial step in preparing the area for repair. 


  • With precision, Dr. Madhava meticulously peels off the internal limiting membrane from the retinal surface. This intricate procedure helps alleviate traction on the macula, facilitating the closure of the macular hole. 


  • Following the membrane peeling, a gas or air bubble is delicately injected into the eye to support and flatten the retina.  


  • You may receive specific instructions to maintain a particular head position post-surgery, ensuring optimal positioning of the gas bubble over the macula for effective healing.
