infiltration was present in two cases (5%), post laminar optic nerve invasion in six cases (15.

All measures of the retinal, choroid, and scleral
thickness were compiled (Table 2).
Lenses were designed to provide crystal clear, and reliable vision performance with exceptional comfort.
The surgical management involved pars- plana vitrectomy and scleral
buckling surgery after informed consent.
buckling was commonly used in the past and is still utilized today in the treatment of retinal detachment.
Posterior segment trauma: types of injuries, result of vitreo-retinal surgery and prophylactic broad encircling scleral
A 5 mm Sheet glide was inserted into the anterior chamber through the scleral
wound (Figure 1(f)).
Trabeculectomy using a small scleral
flap appears to provide medium to long-term IOP control comparable to large flap techniques [3-5] and may offer potential advantages: reduced surgical tissue trauma, a larger area of undisturbed sclera and conjunctiva should repeat surgery be required, and reduced astigmatism induction .
Falling into disuse because the materials were not oxygen permeable, the scleral
lens lost popularity until the technology's resurgence in the 1970s with the development of rigid gas permeable (RGP) materials.
The trabecular meshwork extends from Schwalbe's line to the scleral
Contributed by ophthalmologists from Europe, the US, and Israel, the 19 chapters address the surgical and nonsurgical management of vitreoretinal disorders, including diabetic retinopathy; diabetic macular edema, with discussion of the use of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor drugs and diagnosis; proliferative diabetic retinopathy; the complications and management of diabetic vitrectomy; retinal venous occlusions; rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, including vitrectomy, scleral
buckling materials, and pneumatic retinopexy; the use of prophylaxis for retinal detachment; retinal detachment due to giant tears or dialysis; macular hole surgery; vitrectomy for epiretinal membranes; Irvine-Gass syndrome; and endophthalmitis.
