Mocular Degeneration The retina is the light sensing tissue at the back of the eye. A macular hole is a small, round defect in the center of the retina. Macular holes are most common in women in their 60's and are not associated with any systemic medical problems. Approximately 10% of patients with a macular hole in one eye will eventually develop a macular hole in the other eye.

With treatment, we are often able to close most macular holes with some improvement of central vision.
