Were you looking for information about Vitrectomy? Vitrectomie is a common misspelling of vitrectomy.
If you have a lot of blood in the center of the eye (typically caused by diabetic retinopathy), you may need to have a vitrectomy. This surgical procedure involves removing blood from the center of the eye, which can help restore sight. Although a vitrectomy has a high success rate, it is not a cure for diabetic retinopathy. Once you have advanced stages of diabetic retinopathy, you always will be at risk for new bleeding. You may need treatment for this condition more than once to protect your sight.
