Abstract

Purpose: To report our experience in non-contact wide-angled visualization with chandelier-assisted scleral buckling (SB) in uncomplicated primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRD). Methods: Retrospective case series of 282 eyes that underwent non-contact wide-angled visualization with chandelier-assisted SB and were followed for a mean of 13.5 months. Results: There were 160 male patients. The average age was 42.6 years old. There were 262 eyes that were phakic, 18 pseudophakic, and 2 aphakic. Two-thirds of eyes presented with the macula detached. Eyes had an average of 1.6 breaks. The single operation anatomic success rate was 85.1% (240/282). The pre-op visual acuity improved from 1.21 to 0.76 logMAR at 6 months (p < 0.0001). Complications included a case of scleral laceration, choroidal hemorrhage, 3 epiretinal membranes, 1 macular fold, and 4 eyes with buckle exposure. Conclusion: Non-contact wide-angled visualization with chandelier-assisted SB compares favorably with conventional SB for primary uncomplicated primary RRD.
