Spontaneous Reopening of Macular Hole
Scientific Questions Being Studied
The aim of this study is to identify characteristics that may indicate macular hole reopening and the most effective treatments to prevent it.
- Disease Focused Research (macular holes)
- Methods Development
Methods taken during this study will include an extensive literature review, followed by an evaluation of physical measurements regarding macular hole classification prior to the closure procedure and consequently the rate of reopening.
It is expected that certain underlying characteristics may indicate a higher probability of spontaneous reopening of closed macular holes. This finding could allow ophthalmologists to identify at-risk macular holes and choose more permanent procedures, compared to non-surgical methods.
Demographic Categories of Interest
This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
