Middletown, New York — Orange Regional Medical Center has enhanced its eye surgery services with a state-of-the-art, advanced, surgical technology for vitreous eye surgery at the Orange Regional Medical Pavilion located at 75 Crystal Run Road in Middletown. This new technology allows surgeons to work closer to the retina to make micro-incisions that are small enough to self-seal, eliminating the need for the surgeon to close the incision which in turn helps the patient heal faster and more comfortably.
The Ophthalmologists using this latest technology treat patients suffering from diabetic retinopathy, vitreous hemorrhage, hemolytic glaucoma, central vein occlusion, macular holes or tears and other retinal detachment disorders that cause damage or disease to the eye. This micro-surgery technology enables the surgeon to work close to the retina, which is located near the back wall of the eye, by removing the vitreous gel located in the middle of the eye in order to repair the damaged portion of the eye. Patients are likely to experience a more comfortable surgery, quicker recovery and restoration of visual acuity.
