We report the effect of micropulse laser (MPL) treating a case of residual subretinal fluid (SRF) after rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) surgery. A 38-year-old male patient presenting with residual SRF 6 months following RRD surgery. Initial central macular thickness (CMT) was 243 μm. A 3 × 3 MPL macular grid was performed with moderate reduction of SRF (CMT = 191 μm). Five months following second MPL session, we noted a complete resolution of SRF (CMT = 98 μm) and fundus autofluorescence did not show any laser scare. Micropulse laser might represent a new non-invasive efficient treatment for residual SRF after RDD surgery. MPL effect seemed to be delayed and close follow-up was necessary.
