It's Simple-All Patients, All Problems, All the Time

Retinal Detachment

The eye is like a camera with lenses in front and film in the back. The retina is the film and lines the back 3/4 of the retina. A retinal detachment occurs when the vitreous gel inside the eye pulls and tears the retina. Fluid leaks through the tear and the retina detaches. In years past, and still with a few surgeons, a scleral buckle (a kind of rubber band) is placed around the eye. This causes unnecessary pain and many side effects, and current technology standards allow better results with far fewer problems. These videos highlight some of these techniques.

Retinal Detachment with PVR and Macular Hole

This case was originally repaired with pneumatic retinopexy, then a high scleral buckle, then vitrectomy with silicone oil, then vitrectomy with silicone removal. The patient was then referred in. The retinal foreshortening probably resulted from trying to use silicone oil concurrently with a scleral buckle, which typically fails due to the poor apposition of silicone against the buckle curvature. This results in persisting fluid, most significantly behind the buckle. This was repaired by undoing most of what had been done, removing the buckle, relaxing the retina, removing the paramacular ILM, closing the macular hole and refilling the silicone.
