The macula is a part of the retina responsible for clear vision, the vision straight ahead of you, your ability to identify faces, to read, and to drive. When you develop a hole or a defect in the macula, you notice a loss of vision and deterioration or garbling of letters. There is no pain involved.
If any of these symptoms should occur, you should contact our office for an appointment.
Most macula holes can be successfully treated with vitrectomy surgery. Macula holes are diagnosed by having an eye care provider look inside of your eye.
