Not all macular holes require treatment. Fuad Makkouk, M.D. is fellowship trained at Yale University, and uses cutting-edge technology and imaging equipment to determine the extent of the macular hole. Dr. Makkouk then takes the time to discuss all of your treatment options in detail, including surgical interventions, such as a vitrectomy. During a vitrectomy for a macular hole, the vitreous jelly of the eye is removed, and then replaced with a gas bubble to place pressure on the retina. This pressure helps to seal the macular hole, which can then close.
Don’t take any risks with your vision. If you are having blurred vision, need a routine exam, or have a macular hole, put your trust in Austin Eye Center and Dr. Fuad Makkouk today.
