Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the initial retinal reattachment rates by comparing the percentages/amount. [ Time Frame: 1 Year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in best-corrected visual acuity by comparing letters read. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To determine the change in best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) at the pre-operative visit compared to the 6 month post-operative visit

  • Reattachment rates with 23 gauge and 20 gauge PPV by comparing the amount. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To determine the final retinal reattachment rates with 23-gauge and 20-gauge PPV if multiple surgeries are required.

  • Operating time for 23 gauge versus 20 gauge PPV (time measurement) [ Time Frame: 1 day- Day of surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    This will be done to determine operating times for 23-gauge versus 20-gauge PPV for primary repair of PRD.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Compare rates of intraoperative and postoperative complications by comparing the amount and severity of these complications. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To describe and compare rates of intraoperative and postoperative complications with 23-gauge versus 20-gauge PPV for primary repair of PRD, including but not limited to post-operative hypotony, choroidal detachment, proliferative vitreoretinopathy, and endophthalmitis.

Detailed Description:

The majority of studies on PPV for PRD up to this time have used 20-gauge instrumentation. Currently, both 23-gauge and 20-gauge instrumentation are commercially available for PPV. No studies have reported the efficacy of 23-gauge PPV compared to 20-gauge PPV for primary pseudophakic RRD. As a result, many retinal surgeons choose the modality based on personal preference.
