Stickler syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects several organs. Particularly for patients with a RD in their first eye and often lost vision as a result of retinal detachment in the first eye, a retino has been suggested. The investigators speculate that a scleral buckling surgical procedure performed for the fellow eye of STL patients who have recently announced a RD of the first eye could reduce the incidence of bilateral RD and/or vision loss. Patients in the intervention arm will be treated with encircling scleral buckle surgery, which is a common surgical procedure used for decades and still in use to treat RDs in the current study to prevent rather than treating retinal detachment from a healthy eye of a patient with genetically confirmed Stickler Syndrome.
