Surgical Management of Ocular Trauma

Ocular trauma can lead to loss of vision and of the eye. Much of this loss is due to the appearance of scar tissue in the eye.

Managing surgically the scar tissue to prevent it from causing permanent damage or further damage has been an area of particular interest to the surgical team at Middelheim. In particular the management of trauma using minimally invasive approaches to foster rapid healing with minimal inflammation. Inflammation has been recognised as one of the main causes for scar tissue development. Use of appropriate anti-inflammatory agents in the post operative period further encourages appropriate healing while avoiding further long term complications.

This intervention requires 4 days of hospitalisation in average.
