Hui Li#, Zhen Zhang#, Xiaoqiang Liu, Hao Wang, Chunlei Xie, Xinrui Gao, Fang Wang*

Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) is the most common retinological emergency which may resulted in blindness without treatment. The treatment strategy on the primary RRD mainly includes Scleral buckling (SB) surgery and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). Compared with PPV, SB surgery has unique advantages such as reducing the risk of cataract formation, faster visual rehabilitation and decreasing the incidence of proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
