We studied the incidence of nontraumatic phakic rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) in a defined population of Split-Dalmatia County, Croatia. In this clinic-based study, 272 of a population of 465,947 developed RRD during an 11-year period (1988-1998). The annual incidence was, therefore, 5.3 per 100,000 population. The highest risk for RRD was between the ages of 60 and 69 years.
