Corneal Tear Repair

A corneoscleral laceration is an injury involving the cornea and sclera and may occur following blunt, penetrating, or perforating ocular trauma. The injury may occur at work, during sports, after a motor vehicle accident, or due to airbag inflation. A corneoscleral laceration may be the only injury; injuries to other structures in the eye such as the lens, uvea, retina, or vitreous may cause prolapse through the wound. Eyes that have undergone previous surgery, such as extracapsular cataract surgery, are more likely to sustain a corneoscleral laceration.

Indication for Corneal Tear Repair

A corneal laceration is a serious injury that requires immediate medical attention. Slit-lamp examination can be used to diagnose a corneal laceration. Symptoms of a corneal laceration may include decreased vision, ocular pain, a positive Seidel test, an irregular pupil, intraocular foreign body, and prolapse of intraocular contents.

Corneal Tear Repair

Corneoscleral lacerations are injuries that involve both the cornea and sclera, and can occur from blunt, penetrating, or perforating trauma to the eye. These injuries often occur during work, sports, motor vehicle accidents, or due to airbag inflation. In some cases, a corneoscleral laceration is the only injury; however, other eye structures such as the lens, uvea, retina, or vitreous may prolapse through the wound in more severe cases. Eyes that have undergone previous surgery, such as extracapsular cataract surgery, are more susceptible to sustaining a corneoscleral laceration.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How is a torn cornea repaired?
Corneal laceration repair corrects a partial or full laceration of the cornea, which is caused by a scratch. To fix the laceration, doctors may use irrigation, patching, and suturing. In some cases, laser surgery can also be used.
How long does a corneal laceration take to heal?
Corneal abrasions usually take 1 to 3 days to heal. Your eye doctor will check up on you 24 to 48 hours after your initial visit to see if your cornea has healed. Your vision can be blurry until your abrasion heals.
Can a damaged cornea repair itself?
Corneal injuries can range from small abrasions (scratches) to deeper scratches or other injuries. The healing process for corneal injuries usually depends on the severity of the injury. Most minor injuries will heal on their own, but deeper scratches or other more serious injuries can cause corneal scarring and vision problems.
Can you go blind from a torn cornea?
Most corneal abrasions will heal on their own with proper treatment from a vision care specialist. However, if left untreated, an abrasion can develop into a corneal ulcer, which can cause severe vision loss.
How much does Corneal Tear Repair cost?
The inclusive package for the whole procedure is 50000 Pak Rs.
