Regaining the Gift of Sight: Your Journey to Retinal Surgery at The Eye Foundation

The retina, the delicate light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye, plays a pivotal role in vision. When the retina becomes damaged or detached, it can lead to vision loss or impairment. Retinal surgery, performed by skilled ophthalmologists, offers a lifeline for individuals facing these challenges, restoring vision and preserving sight.

Understanding Retinal Surgery

Retinal surgery encompasses a range of procedures aimed at repairing or reattaching the retina. The type of surgery depends on the specific condition and severity of the retinal detachment. Common retinal surgery procedures include:

  • Pneumatic Retinopexy: A minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a gas bubble into the vitreous cavity to push the detached retina back into place.
  • Scleral Buckling: A procedure that involves placing a band or buckle around the sclera, the white outer layer of the eye, to relieve pressure on the retina and promote reattachment.
  • Vitrectomy: A more complex procedure that involves removing the vitreous gel, the clear substance filling the space between the lens and the retina, to access and repair damaged retinal tissue.
