Keeping pace with recent developments in microincisional operations in cataract surgery, several sutureless techniques in the field of vitreoretinal surgery have been introduced during the last few years. In spite of some advantages over conventional 20-gauge (G) vitrectomy, 25G or 23G transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy techniques involve additional cost for newer equipment and instruments. This video demonstrates transconjunctival sutureless technique for pars plana vitrectomy using conventional 20G instruments. Clinical results, trouble shooting, and surgical tips are presented. This technique is safe and can be applied for almost all vitreoretinal surgery without additional cost for new instruments.
