Purpose: To report a new modification of an illuminated endolaser to facilitate safe endophotocoagulation during chandelier-assisted scleral buckling surgery. Methods: This case series comprised phakic patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRDs) who had primary scleral buckling with chandelier endoillumination, external drainage, and endophotocoagulation using the modified endolaser instrument. Results: All 6 patients had successful outcomes after primary scleral buckling for RD repair without significant intraoperative or postoperative complications. Conclusions: The new modified endolaser instrument can be safely used in a nonvitrectomized eye during chandelier scleral buckling.
