Macular hole (MH) in myopic eyes is a disease arising from complex tractional forces exerted by vitreomacular interface, epiretinal tissue, and progressive scleral ectasia of the posterior ocular globe wall. This retinal disease requires vitreoretinal treatment for its repair, and the surgical intervention remains a challenge also for experienced surgeons. The aim of this review is to describe the current knowledge regarding the pathogenesis of MH in myopic eyes and to detail novel surgical techniques and technological advancements in its surgical management.

Abstract

Macular hole (MH) in myopic eyes is a disease arising from complex tractional forces exerted by vitreomacular interface, epiretinal tissue, and progressive scleral ectasia of the posterior ocular globe wall. This retinal disease requires vitreoretinal treatment for its repair, and the surgical intervention remains a challenge also for experienced surgeons. The aim of this review is to describe the current knowledge regarding the pathogenesis of MH in myopic eyes and to detail novel surgical techniques and technological advancements in its surgical management.
