Dear Mr. Nasir
Vitreo retinal procedures are being performed in Al-Shifa Trust, but unfortunately, in some cases, surgery is unlikely to be beneficial because of fibrotic changes in retina. Now, on this forum, we can just provide you guidance, rest you have to discuss the case with the doctor (Vitreo Retina specialist in your case) who examines the eye.
