Our vitrectomy recovery sleep support is designed for the patient that MUST sleep with their face down. Multiple adjustments make this piece extremely comfortable, and it is used on the patient's own bed. Using this piece makes stomach sleeping comfortable for patients who are used to sleeping on their backs, and ensures they will stay on their stomachs through the whole night. This versatile support can also be used at a desk or a table, providing even more options for the patient. There is ample space for the reverse mirror, and it is easy to use for traveling to visit friends and relatives - use it in the car to assure proper head positioning throughout your trip.
The three piece headrest is an alternative to the crescent shaped headrest on the vitrectomy recovery chair and face down sleep support. It has 3 individual pads, which allow for a surgical guard or eyeglasses. The position of the pads is adjustable to fit the patient's face. Memory foam and fleece covers make this a very comfortable piece.
The reverse mirror is a must have for any vitrectomy patient. It allows you to watch TV in your vitrectomy recovery chair, sitting right below the headrest (optional 3-piece headrest shown in picture). A normal mirror will show pictures upside down and backwards. By showing a reflection of a reflection, the reverse mirror corrects the image, to show what the vitrectomy patient would see if they were looking forwards. Being able to look at friends and family while conversing, use the computer and watch TV are activities that make life more enjoyable while recovering from vitrectomy surgery. The reverse mirror is a small addition which makes a huge difference!
