If there is blood in the eye that does not clear on its own, or if scar tissue causes a retinal detachment, you may need an operation called a vitrectomy. In a vitrectomy, the blood and scar tissue inside the eye are removed with miniaturized instruments. The vitreous fluid is replaced with a salt solution. Later, your eye fills itself with its normal, clear fluids.
