The complete scleral buckling surgery procedure is as follows:

  • The surgeon will make an incision in the patient’s eye socket and then use a microscope to determine the size and shape of the sclera. 
  • The surgeon will then make a small cut in the sclera, which is the tough outer layer of the eye. 
  • The surgeon will then use a small suction device to remove some of the excess tissue from around the eye and to create a pocket for the new lens implant. 
  • The surgeon will insert the lens implant into the pocket and then seal it with stitches. 
  • The surgeon will then close the wound with plugs or stitches, and cover it with a bandage.

Frequently Asked Questions
