Scleral Buckle surgery is sometimes used alone or in combination with vitrectomy to treat retinal detachment. In this procedure, a flexible band (sclera buckle) is placed around the eye to counteract the force pulling the retina out of place. The surgeon often drains the fluid under the detached retina allowing the retina to settle in its proper position against the wall of the eye. This procedure is performed in the operating room.
