Scleral Buckle Surgery In Nizamabad​

If you are looking for an effective and safe surgical procedure to correct the scleral buckle, you are in the right place. Our surgeons at Mantracare Nizamabad offer a variety of surgical options that can correct your scleral buckle.

Scleral buckle is a condition in which the upper eyelid tissue folds over on itself, creating a “buckle” effect. This condition is often caused by structural changes in the eyeball, such as age or injury. As the lid tissue becomes tighter and harder to move, it can create pressure on the eye’s surface, leading to swelling and vision problems.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

The complete Scleral Buckling Surgery procedure is as follows:

  • The surgeon prepares the eye by removing any excess tissue and numbing it with an anesthetic.
  • The surgeon makes a small cut in the lower eyelid to allow the sclera (the white outer layer of the eye) to be seen more clearly.
  • The surgeon removes the damaged sclera, which can be replaced with a new one if needed. 
  • The surgeon then creates a pocket in the remaining healthy sclera and installs a mesh fabric support frame within it.
  • A prosthetic patch is placed over the mesh fabric support frame to hold it in place while the stitches are closed.
  • The stitches are then closed and the eye is bandaged for protection.
