This is an eye from a young man who was working with metal and a piece of metal shot into his eye, through his cornea and lens and landed on the retina causing a crater. In this surgery we remove the metal and repair the retina. DOI: https://doi.org/10.17797/40cgy368y1

The most common cause of macular hole is shrinking of the vitreous and subsequent pulling on the retina. Treatment involves vitrectomy, peeling of the internal limiting membrane, and infusion of gas into the eye. This patient is a 51-year-old female with a macular hole of the right eye.
