Additionally, if you have undergone previous eye surgeries causing scar tissue, a scleral buckle may not initially treat your detachment. In the event this occurs, the procedure may have to be repeated so scar tissue can be removed.
It is important that you contact your retina surgeon if you are experiencing an increase in pain, swelling, decrease of vision, or bleeding after undergoing this procedure.
Dr. Anita Shane at Venice Retina is trained in diagnosing and treating retinal detachments using a scleral buckle technique. If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms related to a retinal detachment, call us for an appointment to discuss your surgical options!
