Macular Hole

A Macular Hole is a small break in the macula, located in the center of the eye’s light-sensitive tissue called the retina. The macula provides the sharp, central vision we need for reading, driving, and seeing fine detail.

A macular hole can cause blurred and distorted central vision. Macular holes are related to aging and usually occur in people over age 60.

The size of the hole and its location on the retina determine how much it will affect a person’s vision.  If left untreated, a macular hole can lead to a detached retina, a sight-threatening condition that should receive immediate medical attention.
