The article takes a look on various treatment approaches for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). The two goals of retinal reattachment surgery are to seal all retinal breaks and to relieve all vitreous traction. The Pars Plana Vitrectomy (PPV) surgery allows for direct relief of vitreous traction associated with retinal breaks. Moreover, the two most commonly used techniques for repair of RRD are scleral buckling and PPV.
