In brief: Vitrectomy

Removal of the vitreous, the material that fills the eye behind the lens and in front of the retina, is done for a number of reasons, including bleeding, infection, to treat or prevent retina detachment and rarely to remove floaters from the eye if they are severely disabling.

In brief: Not sure about a bag

Baggy lower eyelids can be corrected by plastic surgeons or ophthalmologists in a surgery called blepharoplasty.
There should not be a bag of fluid behind the eyeball.
