Frequently Asked Questions

Scleral buckle surgery is a type of eye surgery that is used to treat retinal detachments. The surgery involves placing a band around the outside of the eye, which helps to hold the retina in place. The surgery is usually done in combination with other procedures, such as laser surgery or vitrectomy. MantraCare Chennai offers one of the best facilities & doctors for Scleral buckle surgeries.

There are several risks associated with scleral buckling such as:

  • Infection: There is a risk of infection associated with any surgery, and scleral buckling is no exception. 
  • Bleeding: There is also a risk of bleeding during or after scleral buckling surgery.
