Macular Hole

Definition: It consists of a total rupture of the retina layers in the central area of vision. Symptoms include distorted vision of straight lines (metamorphopsias), central vision spot (scotoma) and visual loss.

  1. 1. Macular hole treatment is primarily surgical, through pars plana vitrectomy (9), peeling of the internal limiting membrane and change by intraocular gas. Some cases of macular hole may benefit from intravitreal treatment with Jetrea (Alcon)(44).
