Macular Hole Surgery
In this video, we review the steps to surgical repair of a macular hole. The macula is the central portion of the retina, and is important for any visual task involving fine detail, such as reading or driving. Occasionally the gel that fills the central portion of the eye tugs on the macula and leaves behind a small hole called a macular hole. The hole's location causes distortion and blurry vision that will only be corrected if the hole is closed.
