    Macular Hole Repair

    By Steve Charles, MD

    Dr. Steve Charles describes a case of macular hole surgery. He uses a vitreous cutter and anterior force to avoid retinal detachment. Dr. Charles prefers 25- and 27-gauge instruments for better tactile sensation, and a flat contact lens for better visualization. He demonstrates the physical characteristics of various membranes encountered and proper instrumentation for managing them safely.
