Paper Abstract

To reattach the retina, in many instances, biological or synthetic belt-shaped exoplants are inserted in the orbit and tightened around the globe's equator to inwardly depress the sclera until its inner layers contact the retina. In deforming the globe these `buckling procedures' are thought to affect the eye's optical system and thus vision. A new non-contact optical technique was devised to quantify the refractive effect of the two most common techniques used in retinal detachment surgery.
