The provider repairs a complicated detached retina. He removes vitreous humor, the gelatinous material that gives shape to the eye, and peels the retinal membrane. He reattaches the retina with extreme heat or cold and may attach a sclera buckle to simplify the passage of fluid through and behind the retina and or drain subretinal fluid. If necessary, he removes the lens and or injects a substance to level up the detached retina.
