What is Retinal Detachment Surgery

Retinal detachment surgery is a procedure used to repair a detached retina, which is the thin layer of light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eye.In order to repair the detachment, the surgeon will need to create a small incision in the eye and insert a special instrument known as a scleral buckle.

This device helps to secure the retina back into place while the fluid that has caused the detachment is drained.The surgeon may also use laser or cryotherapy to seal any tears or holes in the retina.

After the procedure, the surgeon will usually prescribe medications to help reduce inflammation and prevent infection.In most cases, patients will need to wear protective eyewear and use eye drops to reduce their risk of further retinal detachment.

After the surgery, it is important to have regular follow-up visits with your doctor to monitor the progress of your recovery.

Absolutely love how understanding Dr. Kumud Raut is. The only place where I have not been told about only the process of getting a surgery, but rather they insist on educating about how the eye functions and the importance of having a healthy eye before any surgery.
