Macula Holes

  • Macula holes can occur when the vitreous (jelly) pulls on the central part of the retina called the macula.
  • Traction on the macula can lead to a full-thickness macula hole.
  • Common symptoms include blurred vision and distortion where lines can appear disjointed or letters in a word are missing.
  • Macula holes are a serious condition that usually requires day surgery to prevent further loss of vision.
