Macular Hole Symptoms Type Causes & Treatment

Updated: Sep 8, 2023


What Is Macular Hole?

Macular holes are an eye condition affecting the macula, an essential component of retina responsible for sharp, detailed vision. Macular holes manifest themselves by creating small holes or defects within its retinal layer that cause visual impairment. Our macula is a small area at the centre of our retina that plays an essential role in helping us see fine details, read, and recognise faces. A macular hole occurs when there is an interruption or opening in this central vision system due to damage from macular holes classified in three stages: Foveal Detachment, Partial Thickness Hole and Full Thickness Hole - each stage worsens over time as more central vision is affected and eventually all three will develop at once.

What are the causes of Macular Hole?

While the exact cause of macular holes remains elusive, several factors have been implicated as potential contributors:

  • Age-Related Changes: Macular holes typically affect individuals aged 60 and above, and often appear after we reach middle age. With age comes changes to our vitreous, the gel-like substance that fills our eyeballs that causes it to shrink or pull away from our macula; sometimes this traction leads to macular holes forming as a result.

  • Vitreomacular Traction: When vitreous gel remains partially attached to the macula instead of distancing entirely, it may exert tension on it and increase risk for macular holes.

  • Eye Trauma: Severe trauma to the eye may result in macular holes. Forceful blows to the eye can disrupt normal structures of macula, creating holes.

  • Retinal conditions: Diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment can increase your chances of macular hole development, significantly increasing its likelihood.

What are the Symptoms of Macular Hole?

The signs and symptoms of macular holes vary depending on their size and stage, with some common ones including:

  • Central Vision Loss: As macular holes expand, they impair our ability to see fine details clearly and create a central blind spot, leaving straight lines appearing distorted or bent.

  • Blurry or Distorted Vision: Objects in the central visual field may appear blurry or distorted, making it challenging to read, recognize faces or perform tasks that require sharp vision. This could interfere with reading, recognising faces or performing other tasks requiring clear sight.

  • Metamorphopsia: Metamorphopsia refers to the perception of distorted images, where straight lines may appear wavy or crooked; it is often an indicator of macular holes.

  • Macular holes may cause diminished color perception, decreasing one's ability to accurately perceive colors.

Macular holes can severely impair one's central vision and quality of life, and understanding their causes and symptoms is critical to early diagnosis and prompt treatment. If you notice changes to your vision or symptoms associated with macular holes, it is crucial that you visit an ophthalmologist or eye care professional immediately for an examination and consult them regarding potential treatment. Early diagnosis and appropriate intervention could significantly enhance visual outcomes and potentially stop further deterioration in central vision.
