Scleral Buckle Surgery In Jamnagar​

Scleral buckle surgery is a popular surgical procedure used to correct abnormal curvature of the sclera or the white tissue that covers the eye. This procedure is usually performed on adults, but can also be used on children as young as five years old.

The surgery is done by using a special Buckle Suture Device to tighten the sclera, which in turn restores its normal shape and reduces the severity of the abnormality. Patients typically experience a decrease in vision after surgery, but most regain full vision within six months.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

The complete Scleral Buckling Surgery procedure is as follows:

  • The patient is placed on the operating table and secured in place with straps.
  • A cut is made in the lower eyelid to allow the surgeon easy access to the eye.
  • The surgeon carefully removes any excess skin, fat, and other soft tissue from around the eye.
  • Next, they make a small incision in the center of the upper eyelid and lift it up to reveal the white sclera (the innermost layer of the eye).
  • Using a special instrument called an excimer laser, the surgeon carefully burns a tiny hole above and below the hole created in step 2. This creates microscopic tears in the sclera, allowing it to expand laterally.
  • Once the holes have been created, the surgeon uses a plunger-type device to push all of the air out of them. This expands the holes in the sclera even more and makes them much more susceptible to tearing.
  • The surgeon then places a bandage over the top of both eyes and leaves them overnight for healing. 
  • In the morning, both eyes will be slightly swollen but there should be no pain or discomfort. The bandages can be removed after about a day and you will begin seeing better within a few days.

Why Scleral Buckling?

One of the primary benefits of scleral buckling surgery is improved vision. This procedure can reduce or eliminate the need for eyeglasses or other corrective devices. In some cases, patients may even be able to resume wearing glasses full-time after undergoing scleral buckling surgery.

Another benefit of scleral buckling surgery is decreased pain. This is due to the fact that the surgery creates a tighter fit between the eye and the surrounding skin. This in turn reduces pressure on the eyes and can lead to reduced inflammation and pain.

Finally, scleral buckling may also improve overall facial appearance. This is because it can create a more symmetrical eye shape and improve the visibility of eyelashes and eyebrows.

Frequently Asked Questions
