Effective therapeutic options are limited to the management of exudative retinal detachments (RDs). The authors describe the resolution of the case following partial-thickness scleral resection. This 31-year-old male presented with a bilateral exudative RD. There was no history of steroid use either locally or systemically. The fundus eye showed typical of chronic exudative RDs. The axial length was 16.08 mm in the right eye and 15.17 mm in the left eye. Thickening of the sclera was evident in ocular ultrasound. Considering an axial length (nanophthalmic eye), four partial-thickness scleral resections were performed. The exudative RD resolved at 4 months. Partial-thickness scleral resections may be considered as an option for treating chronic exudative RDs patients with nanophthalmic eye.
