Abstract. We treated 36 eyes of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment by pars plana vitreous surgery as the primary procedure. All the eyes were phakic and the lens was left intact during surgery. Horseshoe tear was present in 11 eyes(30%),additional lattice degeneration in 20 eyes(56%),and other lesions in 5 eyes(14%). Vitreous surgery alone was performed in 6 eyes. The other 30 eyes received additional scleral encircling. The retina became reattached in 33 eyes(92%)after the initial procedure and in all the 36 eyes after repeated surgeries. The outcome was similar to previous reports using vitreous surgery and lensectomy. A complete removal of the vitreous is essential when the lens is left intact.
