Purpose: To report a modified surgical technique for chandelier endoillumination-assisted scleral buckling using an endolaser.
Methods: A three patient case reports for demonstration of surgical technique.
Results: All patients underwent successful primary retinal detachment repair without any intraoperative or post-operative complications.
Conclusion: Endolaser can be employed during chandelier endoillumination assisted scleral buckling either as a standalone tool or in conjunction with cryopexy, especially in cases with posteriorly located retinal breaks.

Keywords: rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, scleral buckle, chandelier, endoillumination, endolaser
