Retina Eye Specialists in Ottumwa
Retina treatment and surgery comes in a few different forms based upon your specific retinal condition. Be sure to ask your retina specialist in Ottumwa about treatment options during your retina consultation. To request information, fill out our form here!
Vitrectomy: This type of retina surgery is performed to remove the vitreous gel. Doing so gives the doctor better access to the retina, or the back of the eye. The procedure involves suctioning out the vitreous gel. The retina surgeon will then treat it based on the condition at hand. Afterwards, silicone oil or a gas is injected into the eye to replace the vitreous gel and restore normal pressure in the eye.
Retinal Cryotherapy: This procedure uses intense cold to induce a scar to destroy retinal or choroidal tissue. It is used to treat a wide array of conditions that can affect the retina. It involves placing a metal probe against the eye which becomes cold. This will create water crystals followed by rapid thawing. The process destroys tissue resulting in the formation of scar tissue and healing of the retina.
Scleral Buckle: Typically used to treat retinal detachment, this procedure uses a piece of silicone sponge, rubber, or semi-hard plastic that is placed on the sclera, or outside white layer of the eye. The surgeon will sew the band to the eye forcing the sclera toward the center ultimately relieving the pull on the retina.
