For proper healing, many surgical procedures on the eye require a patient to remain in a face-down position for 23 hours a day, for up to two weeks following surgery. Examples are vitrectomy, surgical repair of a detached retina, repair of a macular hole, and others.
This position can cause back and neck strain and be difficult to maintain, risking improper healing processes....That's where FDME can help!
With proper support equipment available for rent from FDME, the strain and inconvenience is drastically reduced, and chances of healing properly are increased. It's OUR MISSION.
