Scleral Buckling Procedure

scleral buckling

Scleral Buckling Surgery is a surgery that is used to fix the sclera (the white part of your eye) so that it will not buckle under the pressure of your own eyeball. This surgery is done on an outpatient basis and typically takes around an hour to complete.

The surgery starts by making a small incision in the corner of your eye. The surgeon then uses a tiny camera to look inside your eye and see if the sclera is buckling. If it is, the surgeon will make additional cuts in the sclera and fuse it together using special surgical glue. This surgery can be done either open or closed (with an attachment), and most people have minimal pain and no vision loss afterward.

Why Scleral Buckling?

Scleral buckling surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a band to pull the upper eyelid down and inward, creating a tighter fit between the eye and the surrounding skin. There are several benefits to scleral buckling surgery, including:

  • The decreased appearance of wrinkles and age spots around the eyes.
  • Increased clarity of vision.
  • Reduced glare from other light sources.
  • Less fatigue in daytime activities.
  • Improved comfort when wearing eyeglasses or contacts.
