Do we have to pay anything when we pick up the vitrectomy recovery equipment or have it delivered?
There are no additional fees if the equipment is picked up from our location. If delivery and/or pick up is helpful, there will be a small fee for those services. If insurance has indicated there is coverage, there will be no out of pocket expense at the time of rental.
Does the vitrectomy patient have to come in to pick up the equipment themselves?
FaceDown Rental recommends the vitrectomy patient comes in before the surgery if possible, so we may adjust the equipment to fit them. However, a family member can be shown how to make the necessary adjustments, or we can describe it over the phone for our mail order vitrectomy equipment rental clients.
How am I supposed to sleep face down?
We offer a portable vitrectomy recovery sleep support unit that can be used in place of your pillow, ensuring face down sleeping throughout the night.
