Scleral buckling surgery

Scleral buckling is a surgical procedure to repair a retinal detachment by removing the detached humor under the retina, then placing a small band or buckle around the outside of the eyeball to push the sclera toward the retinal tear and keep the retina in place.

What is Retinal detachment?

Retinal detachment is an eye condition in which the retina is detached from the tissue underneath. Its initial cause may be a small retinal tear/hole, letting the fluids flow under the retina, gradually causing the retina to be partly separated from the eye wall. If not treated quickly, the entire retina can be completely detached, leading to a permanent loss of vision. Currently, besides the surgical procedure, there is no effective treatment for retinal detachment.

 Prognosis after
Scleral buckling surgery

Due to the complexity of natural disposition of each person and the disease severity, the surgery outcome and postoperative vision cannot be fully prognosed. Therefore, it is not possible to guarantee the postoperative results with certainty. The post-operative vision can be improved, but very little, or cannot.
