Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment is an ophthalmic emergency that, without surgical repair, often leads to blindness. The incidence is about 1/10000/year. The leading causes are myopia and aging which cause retinal tears often resulting in retinal detachment. Patients commonly experience photopsia, floaters, and peripheral visual field loss.
Two different general surgical treatment options exist for retinal detachment; scleral buckling or vitrectomy. However, the precise indications for each approach have not been well established. Correct classification of the retinal detachment is important. The first step is to decide whether an intra- or extra-ocular surgical approach is more appropriate. Simple rhegmatogenous retinal detachments are usually treated extraocularly with scleral buckling surgery, whereas more complicated cases require intraocular primary pars plana vitrectomy and one or more of gas, silicone oil, laser therapy, or cryotherapy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate different surgical techniques for the treatment of retinal detachment. Data relating to retinal status before treatment, surgical treatment, post-operative anatomy and visual acuity, post-operative OCT, and intra- and post-operative complications will be collected.
Vitreous cytokines will also be analyzed to monitor intravitreal inflammation as a result of retinal detachment.
