Facedown Recovery

“Do it right the first time!”

This was the advice given us as we left the hospital after vitrectomy surgery.  Little did we know how long and how uncomfortable the process was going to be. 

But it doesn’t have to be that way! 

With equipment from Retina Recovery Inc., your facedown recovery success improves and at the same time you will be much more comfortable – and it will make your recovery feel shorter and more manageable.

Whether you have had surgery for a detached retina or a macular hole, our rental equipment will help you comfortably maintain the proper head position you need to heal right the first time.  Because regaining your sight is worth it.
