Disorders of the retina requiring a surgical approach are common (retinal detachment, macular hole, epiretinal membrane, severe diabetic retinopathy etc.) and care is largely delivered in the secondary care setting although cases may be identified in primary care, primary care ophthalmology, and general ophthalmic services.

Vitreoretinal (VR) service standards in this document apply to the care of these conditions which are most appropriately managed in a dedicated VR service.in the hospital setting.
