Macular Hole

A macular hole is a small break in the macula, the part of your eye responsible for detailed, central vision.

What To Expect

A vitrectomy is the most common treatment for macular holes. In this surgery, the vitreous gel is removed to stop it from pulling on the retina. Then gas is inserted into the space once taken up by the vitreous. This gas bubble puts pressure on the edges of the macular hole, allowing it to heal.

 

While the bubble is doing its job, you must lie face down so that the bubble stays in the right place in the eye, sometimes for as long as 3-10 days.

Always follow your doctor’s instructions.

Detached Retina

A retina that has become separated from the underlying choroid tissue at the back of the eye, causing loss of vision.

What To Expect

Surgery is required to repair a detached retina. The procedure is ordinarily performed by a retinal specialist. Customarily, the sooner the retina is reattached, the better the chances that vision can be restored.

 

In this procedure, the clear jelly-like fluid is removed from the posterior chamber of the eye (vitreous body) and replaced with a gas bubble to push the detached portion of the retina back on the RPE (retinal pigment epithelium).

 

While the bubble is doing its job, you must lie face down so that the bubble stays in the right place in the eye, sometimes for as long as 3-10 days.

Always follow your doctor’s instructions.

Infection Control

One of the worst things that can happen during your surgery recovery is an infection. Strains like MRSA and Staphylococcus aureus are rampant among the medical community and should be taken seriously. 

 

One in three people carry staph on their skin and when someone lays face down on a rental unit for days or weeks, they sweat and everything drains.

The body, the nose, the eyes, and the mouth all release bodily fluids that

ingrain themselves into the fibers of rental equipment.

 

If this rental equipment is not cleaned properly, you could very easily be putting your face in someone else’s contaminated fluids. 

This is the risk you are taking when you rent. 

Sure, rental units can be cleaned, but so can public bathrooms.

That doesn't mean you want to use one when you can use your own. 

Unlike a rental unit which may have been used hundreds of times before you, the Recovery System for face down vitrectomy recovery is the first sanitary, affordable equipment that you own.

 

Our equipment is not for rent and is only for purchase. This guarantees that you are getting a brand new, fresh, and sanitary piece of equipment that has never been used before.

 

Our custom head piece is completely vinyl so it can be cleaned as much as you’d like. We recommend a solution of soap and water.
