Vitrectomy is a medical procedure in which a gas bubble or oil is inserted inside your eye as a replacement to a condensed and fibrous vitreous fluid. A vitrectomy may be performed to clear blood and debris from the eye, to remove scar tissue, or to alleviate traction on the retina. This is an easy, painless procedure with a successful track record of improving or virtually restoring vision. Upon insertion, the gas bubble rises and applies pressure to the area that needs healing. However, since the retina is at the back of the eye, the gas bubble will only apply pressure to the top of the eye, and not the retina.
This is corrected simply by facing your head down. It is also very challenging to keep your face down while sleeping when there is a possibility of roll overs.
