ILM peeling in diabetic proliferative retinopathy

In this case Dr. Martin Charles presents a patient with diabetic proliferative retinopathy. A 3 port 23 G vitrectomy is accomplished with the Constellation Vision System. A complete core vitrectomy is performed followed by a detachment of the posterior hyaloid without changing instruments using only aspiration. Proportional reflux is used as a water hose to remove the hemorrhage from the surface of the retina. Later staining of the ILM with brilliant blue G dye is performed and it is removed with the Grieshaber DSP ILM forceps using the Grieshaber DSP pneumatic handle.

Congratulations. It is a very smart comment. The answer to that is that in the first part I use contact indirect lenses and in the final part a direct lens. When using the indirect lenses the image is inverted and as although I use a Volk Rols image re inverter in that part, it inverts only the surgeon optical pathway, leaving the other part of the scope for the assistant and for the cammera inverted. My scope has 2 scopes in it, it is a Leica M841. That is why it seems another eye, because you see in the first part of the surgery the macula in one side and in the other on the other side
