Abstract : The experiments suggest that the application of rotational vibrations and/or the application of approximately a 2G force field could greatly enhance the natural settling of a detached retina in the clinical case and give a firm reattachment around the tear, eliminating the need for surgical intervention. The model studies to date substantiate the feasibility of a migratory reattachment under rotational vibration and/or centrifugal forces and justify proceeding with the next phase of the research project--that of completing the model centrifugal tests and then studying the response of detached retinas in animals by rotational vibrations and/or centrifugal forces including the effectiveness of various osmolar agents on migratory settling.
