To identify complications and evaluate postoperative visual results from a newer surgical technique.
We conducted a retrospective review of 100 consecutive 25-gauge surgeries performed by two surgeons at one institution over a period of 18 months with at least six months follow-up.
Mean visual acuity improved from 20/376 to 20/111 postoperatively (P<0.001). No intraoperative complications were identified.
25-gauge transconjunctival sutureless surgery may be a safe and effective alternative for certain vitreoretinal procedures.
