A 46-year-old man, with moderate myopia, underwent Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) surgery in both eyes on different dates. In the post-operative period, both of his eyes sustained the complication of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD). After RD in the first eye, prophylactic 360-degree laser photocoagulation was performed on the second eye pre-operatively to hopefully reduce the risk of RD. This did not prevent RD from developing in this eye as well. RD is a potential complication of ICL surgery and all patients, regardless of degree of myopia, should be counselled about the risk pre-operatively. It will be prudent to monitor patients closely in the post-operative period, to detect this potential complication early. With subsequent early intervention, patients can have a good final visual outcome.
