Scleral Buckle Surgery In Kota​

Scleral buckle surgery is a delicate and sophisticated surgical procedure that can correct the vision in one or both eyes. The surgery is typically done on patients who have severe myopia, or near-sightedness, and are not able to correct their vision with standard eyeglasses or contact lenses.

The surgery generally takes about two hours to complete, and most patients are able to return to their regular activities within a few days. However, some patients experience minor discomfort and swelling at the site of the surgery for several weeks or months.

If you are looking for a surgical solution to correct your Scleral Buckle, Mantracare Kota has the expertise and technology to help. Our team of surgeons can correct your Scleral Buckle with a variety of surgical techniques, depending on the severity of the buckle.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

The complete Scleral Buckling Surgery procedure is explained in steps below:

  • Patients are anesthetized with general anesthetic.
  • A small incision is made in the lower eyelid, just above the eyebrow.
  • The upper and lower eyelids are separated using a special technique known as scleral buckling.
  • The surgeon makes a small cut through the Orbital Bone on either side of the Eye, then removes the bone and underlying muscles.
  • The surgeon then makes two more cuts on either side of the Eye, separating the tough sclera from the softer conjunctiva (the innermost membrane of the eye).
  • The surgeon then uses a blade to cut through both layers of tissue, allowing the eyeball to fall into its socket.
  • The stitches are removed 6-8 weeks later, and patients can expect full vision within a few months.

Why Scleral Buckling?

The benefits of scleral buckling surgery include:

  • Improved vision. Scleral buckling surgery can improve vision by restoring the normal shape and size of the eye’s lens. This can correct refractive errors, such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
  • Reduced eyestrain. Scleral buckling surgery often reduces eyestrain by providing a more stable surface for the eye to focus on. This can also help improve concentration and focus in daily activities.
  • Reduced need for glasses or contact lenses. After scleral buckling surgery, many people no longer need glasses or contact lenses to see well. Some patients may need a few minor adjustments to their eyeglasses after the surgery to maintain good vision.
  • More comfortable appearance. Scleral buckling surgery often results in a more comfortable appearance because it restores the natural shape and size of the eye’s lens. This can reduce the need for make-up or other beauty treatments to look your best.

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 Kota offers one of the best facilities & doctors for Scleral buckle surgeries.

There are several risks associated with scleral buckling such as:
