Vitrectomy for Bleeding in the Retina Successfully Carried At AEHI

Miss Shubhangi Pednekar 19 year girl is a resident of Navi Mumbai. Shubhangi is a student of IIIrd year B.Com.  Shubhangi is academically strong and very active in her work . Her teachers always appreciated her for her hard work in studies and other college activities.


It was a Friday morning and as she got up late she could not see anything. She rubbed her eyes, still could not see anything around her. She informed this to her mother.They immediately rushed her to the nearby physician who checked her eyes and asked her to have an eye specialist opinion.  He suggested them to visit Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) and said it’s the best eye hospital in Navi Mumbai. So they booked an appointment for Shubhangi.

Next day morning they reached Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute, Shubhangi had her routine eye check-up done and then was referred to Dr. Yogesh Patil, Vitreo-Retina Specialist at AEHI. Dr. Yogesh Patil checked her eyes and explained to them that few special tests are required for the diagnosis of her eye problem.

Dr. Yogesh Patil explained them about FFA (Fundus Fluorescein Angiography).

Fundus Fluorescein Angiography:-It is a special test in which a dye is injected into the blood stream to determine the supply of blood vessels at the back of the eye, and can be photographed. It will help to determine whether the back of the eye is getting adequate blood supply.

After the thorough eye examination, Dr. Yogesh Patil diagnosed the condition as Premacular Subhyaloid haemorrhage in her left eye.

Premacular Subhyaloid haemorrhage:-It is bleeding in the retina. Premacular Subhyaloid haemorrhage is defined as localised detachment of vitreous from the retina caused by the accumulation of blood which can lead to sudden and severe loss of vision.


After explaining them in detail about Premacular Subhyaloid haemorrhage he said that a laser operation can be done for this type of eye problem. So he carried Green laser hyaloidotomy.

Green laser hyaloidotomy:-It is used to perforate Premacular Subhyaloid haemorrhage in order to drain the blood into the vitreous cavity which would resolve consistently in few days’ time. It helps in vision improvement.

Shubhangi was called for her follow up in next 4 days, after examining the eyes Dr. Yogesh said that the  laser procedure has not helped her much. Hence Dr. Yogesh Patil suggested going ahead with an eye operation for Premacular Subhyaloid haemorrhage. She was advised for Vitrectomy. And a day for her Vitrectomy was scheduled.

Vitrectomy:-It is an operation in which the vitreous gel is removed from the middle of the eye.

On the day of operation a local anaesthesia was given and then Dr. Yogesh Patil started operating on her left eye which took an hour. She was out of the OT after an hour and asked to rest in the recovery room. Poonam was discharged home on the same day.

Shubhangi came for a follow-up visit in next day of surgery. Her eyes were examined by Dr. Yogesh Patil in which she could make out the difference in her vision. She could see much clearly. Thus Shubhangi was asked for her frequent follow-up.

Shubhangi and her parents are very thankful to Dr. Yogesh Patil for saving the eye of their daughter.
