Scleral Buckle Surgery In Nagpur​

Scleral buckle surgery, also known as scleral buckle repair or scleral buckle replacement, is a surgical procedure that restores the function of the sclera, or the white part of the eye. The sclera can become damaged by injury or age, and may become difficult to see and lead to vision problems. Scleral buckle surgery repairs the damage and restores the ability to see clearly.

A scleral buckle is a metal band that is placed around the edge of the eye. It is inserted through the eye’s opening (anterior chamber) and tightened around the circumference of the eye. The band stabilizes the eye and restores its normal position in relation to the surrounding structures

Scleral Buckling Procedure

The surgery typically involves removing part of the lower lash line, or lower eyelid, and reattaching it to the underlying structure of the eyeball. This allows the sclera to buckle back into its normal position and restore its protective function.

There are a number of different techniques that can be used during this type of surgery, but the basic process is usually very similar. First, an incision is made just below the lower lash line. This allows access to the underlying tissue and allows for the removal of the offending eyelash or eyelid. Then, the damaged area is sewn back together using surgical staples or mesh. Finally, the sclera is repositioned back into place using a series of stitches or bandages.

Scleral buckling surgery typically takes around two hours to complete and is generally very safe. However, it may cause some temporary discomfort and swell around the eye. Most people experience minimal post-operative pain and are able to return to their normal activities within a few days.

Why Scleral Buckling?

The benefits of scleral buckling surgery include:

  • Improved vision. Scleral buckling surgery can improve your nearsightedness, astigmatism, or other refractive errors by correcting your vision to within a few hundredths of a diopter (a unit of measurement used to describe the correction of vision).
  • Reduced dependency on glasses or contact lenses. After scleral buckling surgery, you will no longer need to wear glasses or contact lenses to correct your vision. This can significantly reduce your daily expenses and simplify your life.
  • Reduced risk of eye infection. Because scleral buckling surgery uses a band to buckle the eye’s upper eyelid, it reduces the risk of eye infection.
  • Reduced risk of glaucoma. Glaucoma is a potentially blinding condition that can be caused by high pressure in the eyes. Scleral buckling surgery can help reduce the risk of developing glaucoma by correcting your vision to a more comfortable level.
  • Reduced risk of cataracts and other age-related vision problems. Cataracts and other age-related vision problems are often associated
