Eye Conditions and Treatment
Macular Holes are treated in the Retina Service
Macular holes may be caused by eye injuries, certain eye disease, and eye inflammation, but generally result from the normal aging process. The vitreous is firmly attached to the central portion of the retina (the macula.) As the vitreous shrinks, as it does with normal aging, it may pull away from the retina. As it moves, a hole can be formed at the macula.
