Figure 3: Microscope-integrated optical coherence tomography (mi-OCT) in a case of diabetic tractional retinal detachment shows an area where the fibrovascular tissue is not adherent to the retina, and space for inserting the cutter is available (white arrow) (a). The vitreous cutter is then used to cut the fibrovascular tissue, first using proportional reflux hydrodissection (PRH) to increase the space, and then activating the cutter mode (b). As the surgery progresses and the fibrovascular tissue (white arrow) is dissected, the retinal elevation and traction reduces (c). In addition, the mi-OCT helps in identifying presence of vitreoschisis near the fibrovascular proliferation (white arrowheads) (d)
