Scleral Buckle Surgery In Bhopal​

Scleral buckle surgery is a surgical procedure used to correct a scleral buckle. A scleral buckle is a condition in which the sclera, the white outer layer of the eye, becomes rounded and sunken. This can cause drooping eyelids, and vision problems, and may require surgery to correct. 

Scleral buckle surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision on the lower eyelid and removes the excess tissue around the sclera. The surgeon then uses a band to tighten the sclera and restore its normal shape. If you are considering this surgery, be sure to contact Mantracare Bhopal about your specific case.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

scleral buckling

Scleral Buckling Surgery is a relatively new procedure that is used to correct a wide range of eye problems. The surgery is done by removing the excess skin and fat from around the eyes and then using surgical staples to hold the skin in place. This allows the underlying muscles and tissues around the eyes to heal properly.

The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and takes about an hour. First, the surgeon removes any excess fat or skin from around the eyes using a small incision. Next, they use surgical staples to hold the skin in place. Finally, they close up the incision with a bandage.

As with any surgery, there are some risks associated with Scleral Buckling Surgery. However, these are generally minor and typically only occur if the stitches are not properly placed or if there is excessive bleeding. In most cases, patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few days of surgery.

Why Scleral Buckling?

The benefits of scleral buckling surgery include:

  • Improved vision. Scleral buckling surgery can improve the vision of patients with severe myopia by bending the eye’s upper wall (sclera) outward. This can reduce the severity and number of myopia-related complications.
  • Reduced myopic progression. Scleral buckling surgery may also help to slow or stop the progression of myopia, which can be a long-term complication of the condition.
  • Reduced need for glasses and contact lenses. After scleral buckling surgery, many patients no longer need to wear glasses or contact lenses. This is due to the improved vision that results from the surgery.
  • Reduced glare and eye fatigue. Scleral buckling may also reduce glare and eye fatigue, which can be common symptoms associated with myopia.
  • More comfortable lifestyle. As a result of improved vision, many patients report more comfortable lifestyles, including reduced need for reading glasses or contact lenses and decreased reliance on technology such as digital devices and computer screens.
