• Aim: To evaluate the effect of vitreous surgery for treatment of traumatic retinal detachment. • Methods: Twenty-four eyes of traumatic retinal detachment were treated by vitrectomy, membrane peeling, relaxed retinotomy, intraocular photocoaugulation, intraocular tamponade with silicone oil or long-act gas, and scleral buckling were performed in some cases. The follow-up duration was 3 months to 2 years. • Results: The retina was attached and visual acuity was improved in all of 24 eyes. Nineteen cases were kept retina attached in follow-up period, five were re-detachment. In these 5 eyes, 3 obtained retina re-attached after second surgical procedure, 2 eyes were atrophy. • Conclusion: Traumatic retinal detachment is often accompanied with dense vitreous hemorrhage, retinal incarceration or severe proliferative vitreoretinopathy. Satisfactory cure effect can be obtained by appropriate vitreous surgery.
