To reattach the retina, in many instances, biological or synthetic belt-shaped exoplants are inserted in the orbit and tightened around the globe's equator to inwardly depress the sclera until its inner layers contact the retina. In deforming the globe these "Buckling procedures" are thought to affect the eye's optical system and thus vision. A new non-contact optical technique was devised to quantify the refractive effect of the two most common techniques used in retinal detachment surgery.
