A Macular Hole is a disorder of the retina, the light-sensitive tissue located at the back of your eye. The macula, a small area at the center of the retina, is responsible for sharp and detailed central vision, which is essential for reading, recognizing faces, and performing tasks that require fine detail.

A Macular Hole occurs when there is a small break or opening in the macula. This disruption can lead to distorted or blurred central vision, making it challenging to see objects clearly and perform daily activities.
