Scleral Buckle surgery is performed in the operating room either under local or general anesthetic. The procedure involves a piece of silicone plastic or sponge being sewn onto the site of a retinal tear to move the sclera towards it. The ‘buckle’ holds the retinal tear against the sclera, the tear is then sealed using freezing probe or laser beam. When the tear seals fluid under the retina gets absorbed.
