Many complicated postoperative vitreoretinal cases require reoperations. It is possible to perform some of these procedures outside the operating room. We describe examining room techniques for fluid-gas exchange, fluid and gas aspiration, and adherent vitreous strand removal. We also discuss a slit-lamp technique for using sodium hyaluronate (Healon) following fluid-gas exchange to eliminate optical distortion from endothelial striae.
