    A patient presented to Bascom Palmer Eye Institute for routine post operative follow-up after rhegmatogenous retinal detachment repair of the right eye one month prior. Best corrected visual acuity was 20/60 in the right eye and 20/20 in the left eye. Intraocular pressures were 21 in the right eye and 14 in the left eye. Dilated fundus examination of the right eye showed an attached retina over a scleral buckle with partial gas fill. In the left eye an incidental horseshoe tear associated with lattice degeneration was noted nasally. The patient was asymptomatic. Risks, benefits, and alternatives for the fellow left eye were discussed and the patient elected for laser retinopexy of the left eye. The lesion showed stability without evidence of progression or detachment after two months.
