Miss Anna Grabowska is a renowned specialist providing regular retinal detachment surgery in London for patients who require this emergency procedure. Here we’re exploring both the intricacy and urgency of the procedure and what happens when you realise you’re experiencing retinal detachment.

Understanding Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment is a serious eye condition which sees the thin layer of tissue at the back of the eye (the retina) detaching from its normal position. This detachment disrupts the supply of oxygen to the retinal cells and quickly leads to vision impairment.

Without immediate medical intervention, retinal detachment can result in permanent damage to the retina, leading to irreversible vision loss. Quick diagnosis and surgical treatment are essential to minimise the overall impact on your vision.

Retinal Detachment Surgery in London

Retinal detachment surgery is the most effective treatment for this condition. Your surgeon can quickly and efficiently reattach the retina and encourage its normal function, enabling the restoration of clear vision.

The choice of surgical technique is dependent on the severity and location of the detachment. The two primary choices available are scleral buckle surgery and vitrectomy. Your surgeon will recommend the best procedure for your vision.

Scleral Buckle Surgery

Scleral buckle surgery uses a small silicone band which is placed around the eye. This creates an indentation (buckle) on the affected section of the sclera (the white part of the eye). This buckle helps to reposition the detached retina, allowing it to reattach. The surgeon may also extract fluid or gas accumulated within the eye to help reposition the retina.


Vitrectomy involves removing the vitreous gel, which fills the central cavity of the eye. This gives the surgeon direct access to the retina. The surgeon can peel away any scar tissue or membranes which may be creating the detachment.

Any retinal tears are repaired, and your surgeon may inject a gas bubble into the eye to support the retina’s stability during the healing process. Over time, the gas bubble is naturally absorbed by the body.
