    A rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) occurs when a tear in the retina leads to fluid accumulation with a separation of the neurosensory retina from the underlying RPE. the presence of macular involvement,duration of detachment and PVR are the most important factors when it comes to restoring visual acuity. Present study was undertaken to assess different aspects of scleral buckling surgery in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment and to evaluate associated risk factors with it .It is also undertaken to evaluate complications of scleral buckling surgery and factors affecting it outcome. Materials and Methods: The present study was combined retrospective and prospective interventional study conducted in a tertiary eye care center, during the period of January 2018 to December 2020 in which 100 eyes of 100 patients were evaluated. Patient presented with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment that were treated by Scleral buckling procedure were included in the study. Results: 100 eyes of 100 patients were evaluated, maximum no of cases 55% were of age group 21-40yrs with 85% of males ,55% of cases had macula OFF and 45% had ON, 5%were having Postoperatively VA (UCVA) at 6 month in range of CF2FT to 6/60, 95% were having postoperatively attached retina,5% had detached retina. Conclusion: Scleral buckling Surgery showed good structural and visual outcome, despite an increasing trend toward primary vitrectomy for RRD, improvement of visual acuity was found to correlate well with the shorter duration of macular detachment and the status of the lens with a better outcome in phakic eyes.
