Delayed Surgery for Macula-on Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment

Zoran Tomic, Ulrich Spandau, Nikolaos Merkoudis (Uppsala, Sweden) Advantages: The first three days after the initial examination represent a relatively safe period during which surgery for the macula-on rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) may be postponed without compromising patient’s visual prognosis, according to recent studies (Wykoff CC, Am J Ophthalmol, 2010). That may decrease the risk of lower success rate, PVR development,...
