    Digital Imaging in Vitreoretinal Surgery Advances could improve surgical outcomes and change how vitrectomy is taught

    Surgery is an ever-evolving field, driven toward achieving better outcomes with fewer complications. Therefore, it is a natural frontier for the development and application of novel technologies, designed to improve results, make procedures easier, and make the impossible a reality. Vitreoretinal surgery is a highly advanced and specialized subfield of surgery, which relies heavily on technology. For instance, although primitive forms of ocular surgery have existed for centuries, vitreoretinal surgery has only been possible for several decades. Taking retinal detachment as an example, it was an irreversible blinding condition until the development of scleral buckling by Schepens in the 1950s ...
