Scleral Buckle Surgery In Mumbai​

Scleral buckle surgery is a popular surgery for correcting strabismus. It is a type of refractive surgery that uses a scleral buckle to correct the alignment of the eyes. During the surgery, the sclera (the white outer layer of the eye) is folded back and secured in place with a band. 

This correction causes the patient’s vision to be corrected and their binocular vision restored. The surgery is done on an outpatient basis, and most patients are able to return to work within a few days.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

The complete Scleral Buckling Surgery procedure is as follows:

  • The surgeon will make an incision on the outer edge of the eye socket, just above and slightly in front of the eye.
  • The surgeon will create a gap in the bone by cutting it with a saw.
  • The surgeon will then insert a thin metal wire into the gap, gently pulling it outwards to cause the sclera to buckle.
  • The surgeon will then use a clamp to hold the sclera in place while they excise it – this is a delicate process so care must be taken not to damage the optic nerve or other surrounding structures.
  • Once the sclera has been removed, the surgeon can close up the wound using stitches or a patch.

Why Scleral Buckling?

There are a few reasons your doctor may recommend scleral buckling. 

  • One reason is that if the eye is pulled down too far, it can cause pressure on the optic nerve, which can lead to vision loss. Scleral buckling can also help reduce the amount of glare caused by nearby objects and improve vision in low-light environments. 
  • Another reason your doctor may recommend scleral buckling is if you have a very high level of myopia. In these cases, wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses may not be enough to correct your vision. 
  • Scleral buckling can help you achieve better vision without having to wear glasses or contact lenses all the time.

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