Abstract

For these retinal detachment eyes with choroidal coloboma involving the disk, complete vitrectomy, incising the entire intercalary membrane along the margin of the coloboma and displacing part of the macular retina to healthy RPE, treating the entire margin of the RPE surrounding the coloboma with diode laser provides an effective treatment for this complicated type of retinal detachment with good long-term anatomical outcome.
