Purpose: The primary aim of this study is to report the outcome of patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) who underwent scleral buckling (SB) surgery. Methods: This is a retrospective noncomparative case series study of all patients who underwent RRD repair by primary SB between March 2008 and February 2009. Patient demographics, visual outcome, complications, and failure rates were identified and recorded. Results: A total of 65 patients underwent RRD repair by SB, with a mean age of 44.44 years. Results showed that the primary outcome (primary anatomical success following index surgery) was 90.77%, while the secondary outcome (anatomical success following repeat surgery) was 98.46%. Conclusion: The study showed a high-success rate of SB in phakic eyes both in terms of postoperative best-corrected visual acuity and complication rates. We recommend the continued use of this technique in selected cases of RRD.
