Dr. Sunir Garg of Wills Eye Hospital demonstrates his technique for instilling silicone oil after retinal detachment repair using widefield viewing. Care is taken to vent remaining air pockets. A good silicone oil fill is then achieved in a controlled approach by allowing oil to come up through the infusion line before increasing the infusion pressure and causing retrograde flow of oil back into the eye.
