How do you know there may be a problem with the scleral buckle? I had this surgery May 21, 2009. Since then I have undergone 2 laser treatments to repair 2 tears. Laser zaps were over 500 combined. My eye flares up and hurts very badly. When this happens, vision is affected. Could I be alergic to the buckle after this long? What are the symptoms? What can be done?
i have had a detached retina where scleral was used.
this was in 2008
i have had major discomfort and dryness.
have had numerous stitches removed from the buckle as they were causing irritation.
what should be done
1. Keep removing the exposed sutures.
2. Look on this page "Today's Pulse" and scroll through them until you get to Dry Eyes which I wrote and follow the suggestions to treat the dry eyes.
3. Take good care of your "good eye" protect it from disease, injury and live a healthy lifestyle.
