Scleral Buckling Procedure

scleral buckling

The scleral buckle procedure is a surgical technique that uses a band to tighten the sclera (white layer of the eye) in order to reduce or eliminate the appearance of retinal detachment. The procedure is most commonly used in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

The surgery involves placing a band around the outer edge of the eye. This band is then tightened, or buckled, so that it presses against the cornea (the clear front surface of the eye). This pressure reduces or eliminates the appearance of retinal detachment.

Why Scleral Buckling?

Scleral buckling is a procedure that is used to tighten the eye’s muscles and reduce the chance of the eyeball rolling inward. It is typically used in patients who have a high risk of rolling their eyes inwards, such as those who are elderly or have a history of eye surgery. If your doctor recommends scleral buckling, here are some reasons why:

  • Your risk of rolling your eyes inwards is high if you have a history of eye surgery or are elderly.
  • Scleral buckling can help to keep the eyeball from rolling inwards, which can decrease your chances of developing vision problems or other complications.
  • Scleral buckling may also help to improve your overall vision by tightening the eye’s muscles and reducing the amount of space between your eyes and the inside of your skull.

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

There are several risks associated with scleral buckling such as:
