Scleral Buckle Surgery In Jalandhar​

Scleral buckle surgery is a surgical procedure that is used to correct strabismus, a medical condition in which the eyes are not aligned in their sockets. Scleral buckle surgery is most often used to correct myopia or nearsightedness. The scleral buckle can cause the eyes to not line up together properly, resulting in myopia.

Scleral buckle surgery is performed by making small cuts on either side of the eye and then pulling the sclera bulla toward the center of the eye. Once the bulla is tight against the rim of the eye, it’s secured with screws or other devices.

Why Scleral Buckling?

There are many benefits to scleral buckling surgery, including:

  • It stabilizes the lens, which can prevent it from becoming loose or foggy and lead to more comfortable reading and vision.
  • It can improve your vision at both near and far distances, making it an ideal choice for people who have difficulty reading or viewing objects at close range.
  • It is minimally invasive, which makes it less risky than other types of cataract surgeries.
  • It is relatively easy to perform, with minimal downtime required.
