Abstract

Retinal detachment is estimated to cause 150,000 (in the United States alone) to be blind every year. Many detached retinas occur in older people. It occurs when the vitreous gel that adheres to retina shrinks and separates from the retina. In this process retinal fissure could occur. We have produced magnetic nanoparticles with uniform dispersion that can be used for the application. These particles are used to produce a magnetic gel. The soft magnetic gel will be inserted in the region where the repair is required, a 5 millimeter wide magnetized scleral buckle a magnetic buckle will be use to hold the gel in place.
