Scleral Buckling Procedure

The complete Scleral Buckling Surgery procedure is as follows:

  • The surgeon will make an incision in the patient’s lower eyelid to access the eyeball.
  • The surgeon will use a special surgical tool to stretch and straighten the patient’s sclera (the white outer layer of the eye).
  • The surgeon will then use a heat gun or laser to heat and thicken the sclera, causing it to buckle and form a new blood-retaining surface.
  • The surgeon will continue heating and thinning the sclera until it forms a tight seal around the eye.
  • The surgeon will then stitch the newly formed seal closed using specialized stitches.

Why Scleral Buckling?

There are many benefits to scleral buckling surgery, the most common of which include:

  • Improved vision in the eye due to less refractive error
  • Improved vision in the surrounding area due to a reduction in astigmatism and other eye problems
  • The improved overall appearance of the eye due to a more regular shape of the eyeball
  • Reduced likelihood of future cataracts and other eye problems
  • Increased range of motion in the eye due to less restriction on the eyeball

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

There are several risks associated with scleral buckling such as:
