Lamellar Macular Holes
The internal cavity of the eye is filled with a gel-like substance (vitreous humor) which is attached to the retina early in life. With age, the vitreous contracts and sometimes leads to cysts. If the front or the back wall of one of these cysts breaks, it is called a Lamellar Macular Hole. This document will discuss symptoms, treatments, and how the diagnosis is made.
