    Macular hole can be defined as the retinal defect involving the foveal region. Anatomically, it may be lamellar or full thickness. Other than senile idiopathic cases, trauma, high myopia and retinal detachment may be among the etiological factors. Tangential vitreofoveal traction was proposed as...
