Post Scleral Buckling
Hi my friend had a scleral buckling surgery done along with silicon oil injected and laser to stitch the breaks a week ago. He had been advices to take care and not touch eyes but yesterday night subconsciously in sleep he rubbed his eyes and felt pain and woke up. Is there a chance of scleral buckle might have come of and stitches would have broken due to this ??plus is there a chance that it might cause retinal detachment .Please help .Thanks in advance

Just consult your retinal surgeon immediately if vision has dropped. If not then also I would suggest to consult the surgeon bcoz false alarm will not do any harm but right call will save your vision.generally mild rubbing doesn't let stitches break or scleral buckle to come out.just relax and visit your surgeon.
