In brief: Depends

Vitrectomy is a surgery that involves entering the back of the eye and removing the vitreous.
In addition, often membranes are peeled, laser performed, etc. The surgery is appropriate when there is a problem that can be fixed with this approach. Examples include: epiretinal membrane, macular hole, retinal detachment, vitreous hemorrhage, etc.
