Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation or number (%).

RRD = rhegmatogenous retinal detachment; BCVA = best-corrected visual acuity; logMAR = logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution.

*We were unable to obtain posture information after surgery for two patients; Fisher’s exact tests; t-tests.
