Purpose : To determine if the Suprachoroidal Buckling technique is a viable option for managing rhegmatogenous retinal detachments in the “Dr. Elías Santana” Hospital.

Methods : Prospective study, including 11 eyes of 11 patients diagnosed with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. All eyes were operated with a suprachoroidal buckling technique and posterior vitrectomy in the retina service of Centro Cristiano de Servicios Medicos.

Results : 11 participants where 4 were male and 7 female. 64% presented a postoperative VA improvement while 18% maintained the same VA and another 18% presented VA decrease. 10 eyes presented and attached retina with a single procedure while only 1 patient needed a second procedure to achieve anatomical success .

Conclusions : The suprachoroidal Buckling technique achieved the anatomical and functional success expected by what was previously described in the literature. Suprachoroidal indentation achieved similar results to conventional approach and the complications presented in the study are in accordance with those reported by conventional techniques.
