Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation or number (%). ASC group is patients who underwent ambulatory surgery center- based vitrectomy and inpatient group is patients who underwent inpatient-based vitrectomy.

ASC = ambulatory surgery center; BCVA = best-corrected visual acuity; logMAR = logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution; IOP = intraocular pressure; POD = postoperative day.
