Scleral surgery: Selected indications and techniques

Stephen J. Ryan, Morton F Goldberg

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Fifteen case histories illustrate a wide variety of indications and techniques for scleral surgery. No significant technical difficulties occurred during any of these procedures. Few post-operative complications ensued, and none caused serious consequences. In an attempt to arrest possibly progressive staphylomas, grafts can be performed on prophylactic bases. Such prophylactic surgical therapy may be useful in carefully selected circumstances, especially when trauma is likely to recur, or when elevated intraocular pressure is likely to develop.
