Retinal surgery encompasses very urgent interventions, such as retinal detachment, and other less urgent ones, such as myodesopsias or floating flies. In both cases, the only solution is surgery, called vitrectomy.
In the case of flies, the intervention is very fast. It is about slowly aspiring the condesación of the vitreous humor (myodesopsias).
Regarding retinal detachment, it may be related to some type of retinopathy that causes an abnormal growth of the blood vessels. This fact causes the retina to break and detach. They are usually more complex cases and require different techniques and instruments to reposition the retina in its place.
