- Vitrectomy for Myopic Retinal detachment with multiple tears and lattice degenerations | Vitrectomy is carried out and triamcinolone staining is used to stain the hyaloid attachment. The hyaloid attachment is extremely adherent. With high vacuum the cutter engages the stained hyaloid and gradually peels it off the mobile retina. After this Perfluorocarbon heavy liquid is injected to flatten the posterior pole and push the fluid to the periphery till the edge of the tear. This is followed by endo drainage from the tear. Once the retina flattened endolaser was carried out.
