Purpose: The present study aimed to evaluate refractive error and axial length changes after buckle removal due to buckle complications. Methods: A total of 15 patients involved in this study. The enrolled patients who had history of scleral buckling (SB) for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment referred to clinic for buckle removal due to buckle-related complications. Complete ophthalmic examinations and IOLMaster (Carl Zeiss) device performed prior and 3 months after buckle removal. Also best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), refractive error and axial length changes evaluated after buckle removal. Results: BCVA, refractive error, and axial length changes were not statistically significant (P value: 0.24, 0.23, 0.33, respectively). No redetachment or any other complication was observed after buckle removal. Conclusion: The study displayed induced globe shape changes due to SB are irreversible after buckle removal. In addition, it is a safe procedure and does not raise any risk of retinal redetachment.
