Abstract

Between Jan 1, 1966, and June 30, 1974, 179 children, birth through 16 years of age with rhegmatogenous retinal detachments, underwent scleralbuckling procedures at Wills Eye Hospital. The detachments were associated most frequently with trauma (44%), myopia (15%), aphakia (10%), and retinopathy of prematurity (8%). Successful reattachment was achieved in 80% of the cases. Vision of 20/100 or better was present in 22% preoperatively and 58% postoperatively.
