Macular holes are just that, holes in the macula. The macula is the central portion of the retina that is responsible for seeing fine details clearly. Macular holes involve cellophane-like wrinkling of the macula. If the wrinkling is especially severe, it can stretch the macula and cause a hole to form.
Many macular holes are treatable with vitrectomy surgery, which is the removal of the vitreous gel from the middle of the eye.
