The authors report the successful repair of a retinal detachment following Cardona prosthokeratoplasty. The surgical technique included pars plana vitrectomy, endolaser photocoagulation, peripheral cryopexy, scleral buckling, and the use of a liquid perfluorocarbon derivative, perfluorophenanthrene, to achieve and maintain reattachment. Perfluorophenanthrene was removed 3 weeks postoperatively. Postoperative visual acuity stabilized at functional levels. No ocular complications, adverse reactions, or redetachment were observed.
