We report three patients with subretinal bands associated with retinal detachment in chronic retinal detachments who underwent successful retinal reattachment. Subretinal bands before and after surgery can be identified on clinical examination and spectral domain optical coherence tomography. Removal of subretinal bands is not mandatory to achieve retinal reattachment.

Case Report
A 20-year-old female with high myopia presented with diminished peripheral vision in her right eye. Her best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/25 oculus dexter (OD) and 20/20 oculus sinister (OS). Dilated fundus examination revealed a nasal shallow RD, lattice degeneration with multiple breaks superonasally, and a subretinal band inferiorly. SD-OCT demonstrated a band of subretinal fibrosis along with subretinal fluid. After lengthy discussion of management options, the patient elected for observation. However, 1 month later her BCVA diminished from 20/25 to 20/40 OD, which corresponded to progression of her detachment into the macula.
