S1982-5 Labtician 5mm Round Sponge is a sterile, non-bioabsorbable device intended to be implanted for intrascleral and episcleral buckling for the surgical treatment of retinal detachment. It is typically a moulded solid silicone or silicone sponge device available in a variety of shapes and sizes that is used to compress the retina long-term (up to months) to support its reattachment following the operative treatment of severe retinal detachment. S1982-5 Labtician 5mm Round Sponge also known as a scleral buckling component, will occupy the intraocular space to provide compression against the retina so that it can reattach. It is typically removed after a period of time depending upon the clinical findings.
