Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the anatomical and functional outcomes of sutureless scleral buckling for the repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD). Materials and Methods: Retrospective analysis of fifty eyes of fifty patients with rhegmatogenous RD, who underwent sutureless scleral buckling from January 2014 to August 2015. Results: Primary retinal reattachment rate of 41 patients was achieved with single surgery, but final anatomical success was 94% with additional pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil injection and with vitrectomy with epiretinal membrane removal. The mean follow-up was 6 months. Conclusion: Sutureless scleral buckling achieves excellent anatomical and functional success in majority of the patients with rhegmatogenous RD.
