My concept of mini-invasive surgery leads me to propose the following strategy: during the evening before the operation, I perform 2 raws of photocoagulation with red laser along the temporal size of the optic pit, in the detached retina; during the following morning I make an anterior chamber drainage followed by a 0.4 ml of C3F8 (3minutes operation) with a face-down positioning. Performing the photocoagulation with red laser through a detached retina avoid us to burn the neural tissue. Vitrectomy with ILM peeling is reserved to the primary procedure failures. The risk of inducing a cataract to non-presbiopic patients is therefore decreased.
