Conditions We Treat: Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy 

Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) develops as a complication of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. It occurs in 5–10% of patients undergoing primary retinal detachment surgery and implicated in redetachment after surgery in 75% of cases.   A vitrectomy surgery can be done to reattach the retina, but recurrent PVR can lead to redetachment and extensive reproliferation of membranes, typically making the visual outcome poor.
