Abstract

We feel that the management of juvenile retinal detachment can best be improved by earlier diagnosis. School vision screening tests should be encouraged, and long term followup of patients with high myopia, aphakia, and retrolental fibroplasia should be practised. The peripheral retina should be examined in all traumatized eyes since delayed detachment is the rule. When retinal breaks are found in high risk eyes, in our opinion, prophylactic treatment is indicated.
