Different Presentations of Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachments

  • Thomas H. Williamson


The commonest RRD is caused by an age-related PVD; this can be treated using the principles defined in the previous chapter. As this is by far the commonest presentation, the clinical characteristics (PVD, U-shaped breaks, usually acute onset retinal detachment) have been used as the basis for the clinical described in the previous chapter and are summarised here:


Retinal Detachment Cataract Surgery Macular Hole Internal Limit Membrane Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment
