Objective: We combined heads-up 3-dimensional (3D) 27-gauge microincision vitrectomy surgery (27GMIVS) with a very low-intensity illumination system. Methods: This study was based on a retrospective, interventional case series of 6 eyes of 6 patients with macular disease. All patients underwent heads-up 3D 27GMIVS and the power of the intraocular illuminator was set to its minimum level, 1% (approximately 0.1 lm), throughout the surgery. Results: We found that the procedure was easy when the heads-up 3D system was used, but not through the eyepiece of a microscope. All surgeries were successfully finished without any complications. Postoperative visual acuity was restored or maintained in all eyes during the follow-up period. Conclusion: Heads-up, 3D system-assisted 27GMIVS with minimal illumination enabled excellent intraoperative visualization of retinal tissues, caused minimal phototoxicity to the macular retinal cells, and might therefore represent the next step in the development of an ideal, minimally invasive method of treating macular disease.
