Abstract

In 82 eyes with complex retinal detachment requiring internal tamponade, 53 were filled with 5000-cs and 29 with 1000-cs silicone oil. Use of high-viscosity silicone oil (5000 cs) may be associated with a poorer anatomic and functional outcome compared with lower viscosity silicone oil (1000 cs).
