Scleral Buckle Surgery In Rourkela​

Scleral buckle surgery is a popular and effective way to correct strabismus. The sclera, or white of the eye, can become displaced due to an abnormal muscle imbalance in the eye. This can cause the eyes to point in different directions and is often treated with surgery.

The procedure involves making a small cut in the skin around the eye and using a special tool called a scleral buckle to gently fix the eye in its normal position. The surgery is relatively painless and most people can go home the same day. Recovery time is usually short, and patients can resume normal activities within a few days.

Scleral Buckling Procedure

scleral buckling

The Scleral Buckling Surgery is a delicate and complex operation that restores the normal shape of the eye. It is a type of surgery that uses a small amount of plastic surgery to tighten and restore the curvature in the lens of the eye. This procedure is often used to correct severe cataracts or glaucoma.

  • The surgeon will make an incision in the lower eyelid, just above the pupil.
  • The surgeon will use a special tool to gently lift and stretch the upper eyelid so that it can be easily removed.
  • The surgeon will then make an incision in the center of the lid, just above the iris (the colored part of your eye).
  • The surgeon will insert a tiny camera through this opening to view the inside of your eye. This helps to ensure that the surgical area is precisely located and avoids any damage to your eyeball or surrounding tissue.
  • The surgeon will then use a special instrument to remove excess fat and other tissues from around your eyesight (the “tunnel”).
  • The surgeon will use a small scalpel to cut into your eyeball (a “segmentectomy”).
  • The surgeon will then use a special instrument to remove the defective lens from your eye (a “lens extraction”). 
  • Finally, the surgeon will replace your damaged lens with an artificial one
