A vitrectomy probe includes a hollow needle having a sidewall and a tip, a port formed in the sidewall of the hollow needle and spaced apart from the tip, and a cutter positioned within the hollow needle. The cutter is slidable relative to the port to cut tissue within the port. The vitrectomy probe also includes a manipulation feature defined by at least one recess formed in the tip of the hollow needle, the sidewall of the hollow needle, or both. The manipulation feature is configured to facilitate manipulation of tissue using the hollow needle.
