As highly trained specialists in retinal detachment surgery, our staff is skilled in the latest technology and techniques in the surgical treatment and restoration of the precious sense of sight. Repair of the retina is serious because your sight is precious to you and to us. Dr. Stoh will discuss which surgical option is the right one for you should you be diagnosed with retinal detachment, but the three options for treatment are: the scleral buckle procedure, vitrectomy and pneumatic retinoplexy.
Pneumatic retinopexy uses a gas bubble to repair the tear in the retina. A gas bubble is injected into the eye and then the patient is positioned so that the gas bubble is able to push against the tear in the retina and seal it. For more complete understanding of this procedure it is best to contact our office. We at Retina Consultants of Long Island believe that our patients should be well informed and so we are here to answer all of your questions and address all of your concerns when it comes to retina detachment.
