There was also no signiﬁcant difference in (SCT) in cases with chronic rhegmatogenous retinal the SCT in eyes with chronic RRD between the detachment (RRD), before and after pars plana operated and fellow eyes after surgery. It may be vitrectomy, and cases with acute RRD using optical concluded that vitrectomy does not affect choroidal coherence tomography. thickness. Methods This retrospective study included 24 eyes with chronic RRD and 26 eyes with recent-onset RRD. Keywords Acute rhegmatogenous retinal Best corrected visual acuity, intraocular pressure, and detachment Chronic rhegmatogenous retinal SCT were measured and compared between the two detachment Pars plana vitrectomy Spectral-domain groups. Of 24 eyes with chronic RRD, 11 had primary optical coherence tomography Subfoveal choroidal pars plana vitrectomy.
