To determine the difference among the results of three kinds of methods for the treatment of simple retinal detachment. METHODS: We analyzed the patients undergoing primary pars plana vitrectomy(Group I: January to June, 1997), scleral buckling(Group II: January to June, 1996) and pneumatic retinopexy(Group I: January to June, 1995) to treat simple retinal detachments with retinal breaks located in peripheral retina, smaller than one clock hour, breaks in the superior eight clock hours, multiple breaks extending less than two clock hours and no severe retinal traction. RESULTS: The final visual acuity was 5/200 or more(functional success) in 19 eyes(100%) of Group I, 19 eyes(100%) of Group cII and 20 eyes(90.9%) of Group I. Primary retinal reattachment(anatomical success) was in 17 eyes(89.5%) of Group I, 19 eyes(100%) of Group II and 18 eyes(81.8%) of Group I with no statistically significant difference among the three groups. The final retinal reattachment rate was 100% in all groups. CONCLUSIONS: This result suggests the scleral buckling might be a little bit better for the treatment of simple retinal detachment, though each of three surgical methods showed no statistical difference of functional and anatomical results.
