    Understanding Visual Acuity Outcomes After Retinal Detachment Repair by Assessing Photoreceptor Integrity on Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    The annual incidence of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment is approximately 18 to 22 per 100 000 population1,2 and reported techniques for reattaching the retina include pneumatic retinopexy (PnR), scleral buckle, and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). Recently, it has become increasingly common to repair a retinal detachment using vitrectomy and gas, given the higher anatomical success rate of this procedure. However, the Pneumatic Retinopexy Versus Vitrectomy for the Management of Primary Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Outcomes Randomized Trial (PIVOT) showed that even though the anatomical success of PnR is lower than that of PPV, visual acuity outcomes were better and rates ...
