ABSTRACT
A woman with age-related macular degeneration and an extrafoveal choroidal neovascularization was treated with thermal laser photocoagulation. Three years later, an optical coherence tomography image showed a full-thickness macular hole with some contracture toward the adjacent atrophic laser scar, suggestive of some presumptive tangential forces.
