This was an iteresting case where the proliferative vitreoretinopathy caused a retinal shortening in a phakic patient. We decided on performing buckle-vitrectomy in order to decrease the likelihood of a peripheral retinal redetachment secondary to another PVR. By putting a buckle around the eye, the free temporal retina will find a wall and support for its periphery, and that helps support that area with the appropriate indentation from the buckle.
