BACKGROUND: This study was performed to assess the feasibility and efficacy of intraoperative laser retinopexy in scleral buckling (SB) surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective, noncomparative, and interventional study. Records of 25 patients who had undergone intraoperative laser retinopexy during SB were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS: All patients were phakic and macula was off in all cases. Adequate intraoperative laser retinopexy was achieved in 22 (88%) patients, and 3 (12%) patients required additional postoperative laser. Retina was attached in all patients at 6-month follow-up. CONCLUSION: Intraoperative laser retinopexy can give comparable results to cryoretinopexy with lesser postoperative complications in SB surgery. Although further comparative studies are needed, this study establishes the feasibility of intraoperative laser retinopexy in SB which has never been described before in the literature as per our knowledge.
