To clarify the ciliary body and choroidal detachment after panretinal photocoagulation and to inspect complications by ciliary body and choroidal detachment after panretinal photocoagulation. METHODS: A dynamic, in vivo examination using ultrasound biomicroscope (UBM) was performed on 12 eyes of 11 patients before, immediately after, and 3 and 7 days after panretinal photocoagulation. IOP measurement was performed on each occasions, and the spot size, and spot number of laser applications of each patient was measured. RESULTS: Three days after photocoagulation, ciliochoroidal detachment was observed in 6 of the 12 eyes, but none was observed at 7 days. The retinal surface area that had been treated was associated with the development of detachment. No significant IOP change according to the ciliochoroidal detachment was present. CONCLUSIONS: Although ciliochoroidal detachment was asymptomatic and transient in this study, potential hazards such as angle closure glaucoma necessitate careful attention in the planning of panretinal photocoagulation. UBM is a useful tool for the evaluation of ciliochoroidal detachment after photocoagulation.
