MAASTRICHT, Netherlands — MyopReD, an ESCRS study, will look at the influence of posterior vitreous detachment before surgery on retinal detachment rate after lens surgery in myopic eyes.

“This is a multicenter study involving 10 sites in five countries in Europe. We are going to recruit 618 patients with [axial length of] 25 mm or longer, with main outcome at 3 and 5 years. Clinical slit lamp evaluation, OCT and [ultrasound] if needed will be used to define whether PVD is present,” Oliver Findl, MD, MBA, said at the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons winter meeting.
