Abstract
Macular hole is a full-thickness defect in the neurosensory retina at the fovea that presents with diminution of vision. In majority of the causes, it is idiopathic, though many other etiological theories have also been proposed. Small macular holes are usually associated with better prognosis than the larger ones. Various surgical procedures have been described to manage this condition and there have been continuous improvements in the management techniques. This review article summarises all the surgical techniques and modifications.
