Hello, I had a scleral buckle fitted 3 years ago, Yesterday I took part in some extreme sports, I'd like to know if the buckle could fail or the retina become detached again, only im not sure if I'm having symptoms in that eye.
Since you have already had a detached retina, it is always possible for it to recur. Usually, once the buckle is done, the repair holds. But, again, it is possible for the retina to detach again.
If you are having the same symptoms as before your buckle procedure, you should see your ophthalmologist. These are such things as bright flashes of light or an area in the visual field like a curtain pulled down.
