Scleral Buckle Surgery In Bangalore​

Scleral buckle surgery is a type of eye surgery that is used to correct a misaligned or crooked eyelid. This surgery is often used to improve the appearance of the eyes and can also help with vision correction. The surgery is performed by removing the skin and underlying muscle around the eye socket and replacing it with a scleral buckle. This buckle is secured in place by screws and allows the eyelid to move more freely, which can improve the appearance of the eyes.

Most patients require only minimal post-operative care and are able to resume their normal activities within a few days. Scleral buckle surgery is a relatively safe procedure that can result in improved vision in one or both eyes. If you are interested in having this type of surgery performed in Bangalore, please contact our office for more information.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

scleral buckling

Scleral buckle surgery is a delicate and complex procedure used to correct scleral buckling, a common issue that can result in vision loss. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia using a small incision in the lower lid.

The surgeon first prepares the area by removing excess skin and fat. Next, they create a small pocket in the lower lid using a thin metal wire. The wire is inserted through the opening created by the previous steps and secured in place with stitches.

Next, the surgeon uses a special tool to gently pull the eyeball forward, away from the back of the eye socket. This allows them to correct the scleral buckling without having to remove the eyeball altogether.

The final step of the surgery is to re-attach the eyelid to the eyeball using stitches and adhesives. patients can usually resume normal activities within days of surgery.

Why Scleral Buckling?

There are a few reasons your doctor may recommend scleral buckling:

  • To correct a misaligned eye socket or to improve vision in an eye that is not performing as it should.
  • To correct a deviated and/or rotated eye socket.
  • To correct a problem with the muscles that hold the eyeball in its socket (the orbicularis oculi).
  • To correct a problem with the nerves that supply vision to the eye.
