Is it OK to wait a month for macular hole surgery?
MAY 02, 2018
I have been diagnosed with a macular hole stage 3 and my surgery is not scheduled until a month from now. Is that OK?
There is no clear consensus on the urgency of macular hole surgery. In most cases, the timing is linked to the duration of symptoms. If the symptoms/diagnosis is quite recent, then there is more reason to perform the surgery sooner.
