Abstract

In cases where loss of visualization the ability to accomplish surgical goals, hybrid endoscopic vitrectomy is a valid option where an endoscope is combined with a traditional microscopic wide angle viewing system. This may also be done with a three dimensional heads-up display where the endoscopic view is reported on the same monitor as the wide field microscopic view. Endoscopy remains a useful adjunctive technique in several clinical scenarios which may be encountered in uveitic retinal detachment or endophthalmitis. For those interested in pursuing ophthalmic endoscopy, additional information, techniques and animated programs and videos are available on a free educational website, ophthalmicedge.org.
