A simplified scleral reinforcement technique.

Abstract

A simplified scleral reinforcement technique performed on 52 eyes with myopic degeneration prevented further visual loss by strengthening of the sclera over the posterior pole. This scleral homograft was useful not only in older patients with high myopia and posterior staphyloma, but also in younger patients in whom the degenerative process could be stopped at an earlier stage. In all cases in which follow-up was possible, the visual acuity remained at the preoperative level before surgery was performed or it improved.
