Abstract

Aim: To discuss the rare complication of diplopia following surgical repair of a primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.

Method: The case of a 52-year-old woman who underwent cryo-buckle surgery for her retinal detachment repair is described from the perspective of her post-operative orthoptic management.

Results: A conservative approach was taken as the patient’s diplopia was controlled by the use of prisms.

Conclusion: Options to control diplopia include prisms, Botox and strabismus surgery; however, the conservative approach of incorporated prisms to control a small strabismus is generally sufficient.
