    A macular hole is a small break in the macula, the part of your eye responsible for detailed, central vision. 

    Although the symptoms can be very similar to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the condition is very different.

    It’s not clear why some people develop a macular hole and others don’t. 

    This fact sheet discusses the symptoms of macular hole, treatment options, recovery from treatment, and possible complications from macular hole surgery.

    The fact sheet can be viewed online or downloaded.
