The objective of this case-control study of idiopathic retinal detachment was to evaluate previously suggested hypotheses about risk factors for retinal detachment and to investigate whether new ocular or systemic risk factors could be identified.
Between 1986 and 1990, data were obtained at five US clinical centers on 253 patients with idiopathic retinal detachment and 1,138 controls.
Patients with pathologic myopia were excluded.
Data were collected from interviews, clinical examinations, and laboratory analyses of blood samples.
Only one clearly relevant risk factor, myopia, emerged from the analyses.
