In a subset of patients presenting with rhegmatogenous retinal detachments, demarcation-laser photocoagulation is associated with long-term stability. Three patients with subclinical macula-sparing rhegmatogenous retinal detachments were treated with laser demarcation and had no progression over a follow-up of 3–10 years. One case had spontaneous resolution of retinal detachment after laser demarcation. Rather than observation or surgery, this alternative management strategy can be considered in some patients.
