Scleral Buckle Surgery In Gurgaon​

Scleral buckle surgery is a simple and minimally invasive procedure used to fix or adjust the position of the eye. This surgery is most commonly used to correct strabismus (crossed eyes), but can also be used to correct other problems with eye alignment, such as myopia (nearsightedness).

The surgeon uses a scleral buckle to tighten or loosen the sclera (the thin film of tissue that covers the eyeball). This adjustment can help improve eye alignment and vision.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

scleral buckling

Scleral buckling is a surgical procedure used to fix a patient’s eye in its socket. The surgical procedure begins by folding the upper eyelid over the lower lid. 

The surgeon then inserts a metal rod through the center of the upper and lower lids, pinning them together. This action creates tension in the sclera, or the white part of the eye, which causes it to buckle. 

The buckled sclera is then removed by the surgeon, and the eye is fixed in its new position.

Why Scleral Buckling?

The use of scleral buckle surgery to correct refractive errors is becoming increasingly common. This type of surgery is typically recommended when other treatments, such as glasses or contact lenses, do not provide the desired results. There are several reasons why your doctor may recommend this type of surgery.

  • One reason is that some people with severe myopia, or nearsightedness, find that wearing glasses or contacts does not improve their vision to a level where they are happy with their appearance. In these cases, scleral buckle surgery can provide better vision without the need for additional medication or eyewear.
  • Another reason is that a patient’s glasses or contact lenses may become loose over time. This may cause lens distortion and discomfort. Scleral buckle surgery can tighten the eye muscles and help keep the eyes in their natural position.
  • In some cases, scleral buckle surgery can also be used to correct an irregularity in the eye’s cornea. The cornea is the clear front surface of the eye. An irregularity in this surface can lead to blurry vision and sometimes requires corrective surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions
