The aim of this study was to report a surgical technique for retinal detachment associated with optic disc pit (ODP) by using an internal limiting membrane (ILM) inverted flap as an obstacle between the vitreous cavity and subretinal space. A 43-year-old man presented with decreased visual acuity in the right eye for 1 week due to macular detachment associated with ODP. After 2 unsuccessful surgeries, the retina was reattached by vitrectomy with an ILM inverted flap onto the ODP. Covering the pit with an inverted ILM flap is a reliable method for intercepting fluid from the vitreous cavity. Immediate absorption of subretinal fluid may lead to early macular attachment. This technique would be effective in managing ODP.
