Scleral Buckle Surgery In Lucknow​

Scleral buckle surgery is a type of eye surgery that is used to fix the eyes in their correct position. This surgery is commonly used to correct vision problems, including astigmatism and myopia. Scleral buckle surgery is also used to correct various types of eye deformities, including droopy eyelids and saggital strabismus (in which one eye wanders away from the other).

Scleral buckle surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. The patient will usually stay overnight in the hospital after the surgery is completed. After the surgery, the patient will need to wear temporary eyeglasses or an eye patch for a period of time. The final result of this type of surgery is that the eyes are fixed in their correct position and are no longer subject to wandering or misalignment.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

scleral buckling
  • Step 1: Consult with your surgeon about the specific procedure you are considering.
  • Step 2: In order to properly assess your condition, your surgeon may require a medical history and physical examination.
  • Step 3: After reviewing your medical history and examination results, the surgeon will create a treatment plan specific to your individual case. This plan will include an assessment of the sclera and its surrounding tissues.
  • Step 4: The surgeon will then perform a pre-op evaluation to ensure that the surgical procedure is safe and feasible. This evaluation may include taking photos or videos of the eye, assessment of intraocular pressure (IOP) levels, and other tests as deemed necessary.
  • Step 5: Following pre-op approval, the surgery can commence. During surgery, your surgeon will make a small incision in the lower lid of your eye and insert a small telescope into the anterior chamber of your eye. This telescope is used to gently break the sclera (the outermost layer of the eye) without causing any damage to the rest of the eye or surrounding tissues.
  • Step 6: Once the sclera has been broken, your surgeon will use a curing light to fuse it together again in a predetermined pattern. This process is often very uncomfortable, but it is essential for restoring vision in patients who have lost their sight as a result of Scleral Buckling Surgery.

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

There are several risks associated with scleral buckling such as:

  • Infection: There is a risk of infection associated with any surgery, and scleral buckling is no exception. 
  • Bleeding: There is also a risk of bleeding during or after scleral buckling surgery. 
  • Retinal Detachment: One of the more serious risks associated with scleral buckling is retinal detachment. This occurs when the retina becomes separated from the back of the eye and can lead to vision loss.
