On the basis of clinical indications, they were divided in four groups which included 18 (55%) patients having Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment
, 9 (27%) having Macular holes, 3 (9%) with Vitreous hemorrhage and last 3 (9%) having Dislocation of intraocular lens table-I.

Results of treating rhegmatogenous retinal detachment
with vitrectomy and silicone oil tamponade.
Contributed by ophthalmologists from Europe, the US, and Israel, the 19 chapters address the surgical and nonsurgical management of vitreoretinal disorders, including diabetic retinopathy; diabetic macular edema, with discussion of the use of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor drugs and diagnosis; proliferative diabetic retinopathy; the complications and management of diabetic vitrectomy; retinal venous occlusions; rhegmatogenous retinal detachment
, including vitrectomy, scleral buckling materials, and pneumatic retinopexy; the use of prophylaxis for retinal detachment; retinal detachment due to giant tears or dialysis; macular hole surgery; vitrectomy for epiretinal membranes; Irvine-Gass syndrome; and endophthalmitis.
Many factors are identified that might influence the final outcome of scleral buckle surgery (SBS) for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment
and include preoperative findings such as: preoperative visual acuity [2-4], patient age , anatomical features such as whether macula is attached or detached, duration of macular detachment [2,3], extent of retinal detachment , position and number of retinal breaks [2, 4], refraction (myopia, as a predisposing factor for retinal breaks)  and formation of proliferative vitreoretinopathy .
This process plays a central role in various blinding conditions, which includes rhegmatogenous retinal detachment
, proliferative diabetic retinopathy and macular hole formation.
has launched a Phase II clinical trial for INS37217 Ophthalmic (denufosol tetrasodium) for the treatment of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment
According to a 1995 report by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, one in 10,000 people has a retina detach because of a tear or break, a condition called rhegmatogenous retinal detachment
