Scleral Buckle Surgery In Madurai​

Scleral buckle surgery is a type of eye surgery that is used to correct misaligned eyes or an abnormal shape of the eyeball. The procedure involves removing the sclera (the white outer layer of the eye) and replacing it with a band or band-like structure. This restores the normal shape and position of the eyeball and often improves vision.

Scleral buckle surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure. Most patients experience minimal discomfort following surgery, and most see significant improvement in their vision within days or weeks. Scleral buckle surgery is a relatively simple and safe procedure, and most patients can expect to have good results.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

scleral buckling

Scleral buckling surgery is a type of surgery used to fix a broken or dislocated sclera in the eye. The surgery is done through a small incision in the lower eyelid and uses special tools to fix the sclera in its correct position. There are three steps to the surgery:

  • The surgeon removes the damaged sclera with a special tool.
  • The surgeon fixes the sclera in its new location using special tools.
  • The surgeon stitches the skin around the eye closed.

Why Scleral Buckling?

Scleral buckling surgery is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that can provide many benefits for patients. The surgery, which is often performed on people who are experiencing dry eye syndrome, can improve vision by widening the angle of the eye’s cornea, or front window. Additionally, the surgery can help to reduce or eliminate symptoms of dry eye such as redness, itching and pain.

Additionally, scleral buckling surgery can improve overall vision by correcting refractive errors (such as myopia and hyperopia) and providing accommodative relief. In many cases, the surgery can also improve depth perception and help to reduce eyestrain and headaches. Finally, scleral buckling surgery can provide some cosmetic benefits by improving the appearance of the eyes.

Frequently Asked Questions

The surgery is usually done in combination with other procedures, such as laser surgery or vitrectomy. MantraCare Madurai offers one of the best facilities & doctors for Scleral buckle surgeries.
