Complete or Full Thickness Macular Holes affect all the layers of the macula, often begin slowly but usually will severely affect the central vision. Partial Thickness Macular Holes, or Pseudoholes, holes may only affect part of the macular layers, causing wavy, distorted or blurred vision or they can occur as full thickness holes causing a complete loss of central vision that may become progressively worse.
Symptoms of Macular Hole
The severity of the symptoms of macular hole depends on whether the hole is partial thickness or full thickness, but in general may include the following:
- Blurred Central Vision
- Distorted, “Wavy” Vision
- Difficulty reading or seeing fine detail even with glasses
- Grayish Area in Central Vision
- Central Blind Spot or “Dark Spot”
