Retina Surgery in Pleasant Hill
Wolfe Eye Clinic’s retina care specialists perform vitrectomy, retinal cryopexy and scleral buckle. Each is used for different purposes and some for specific retinal conditions:
Vitrectomy: Your retina care specialist may use this procedure if better access is necessary to reach the retina. The procedure involves removing the vitreous gel in the center of the eye to clear the path to the retina or back of the eye. A vitrectomy may also be performed in the case of a vitreous hemorrhage. To learn more about the vitrectomy procedure, contact a retina care specialist at Wolfe Eye Clinic or request an appointment here.
Retinal Cryopexy: Also referred to as retinal cryotherapy, this treatment option uses intense cold to induce a scar to destroy retinal or choroidal tissue. It is used for a variety of retinal conditions such as retinal tears or detachments.
Scleral Buckle: This procedure is most commonly used to treat retinal detachment. A scleral buckle is sewn to the outside of the eye to allow the retinal tear to settle against the wall of the eye. It’s typically a temporary fix that requires cryopexy or laser treatment to permanently prevent the retinal tear from reopening.
Please contact Wolfe Eye Clinic at (833) 474-5850 to ask any questions about retina surgery options or to schedule an appointment with one of our retina care specialists.
