Intraoperative photographs taken during surgeries using an conventional scleral depressor (A) and the new scleral depressor (B). During the surgery with the conventional scleral depressor (A), the posterior border of the retinal break was located at the protruded position when the depressor pressed the sclera. In the scleral buckling surgery with the new depressor (B), the location of the retinal break can be identified more accurately by transilluminating the sclera. The position of the buckle can then be determined with the device by aligning the top of the buckle with the midpoint of the posterior boundary of the retinal break. Video clips are also available (conventional scleral depressor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vubj3wZ75Cw; new scleral depressor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHHn7Y5pMRk).
