PURPOSE To report the clinical course and images of optical coherence tomography of an eye with a stage 2 macular hole which closed spontaneously. DESIGN Observational case report. METHODS Serial optical coherence tomographic images were obtained. RESULTS A 67-year-old woman received a diagnosis of stage 2 idiopathic macular hole in her right eye. The diagnosis was made with a tomographic image of a full-thickness dehiscence of the neurosensory retina at the fovea. The posterior hyaloid… Expand
Spontaneous resolution of grade 2 macular hole observed with optical coherence tomography
TLDR
After a 6-month follow-up period, spontaneous resolution of the macular hole was observed with good visual recovery and the posterior hyaloid membrane was fully separated from the fovea with restoration of almost normal foveal contour. Expand
Development of Stage 4 Macular Hole after Spontaneous Closure in a Patient with Stage 2 Macular Hole and a Lamellar Macular Hole-Associated Epiretinal Proliferation
TLDR
The longitudinal observation of a case with reopening of the macular hole associated with a lamellar macular Hole-associated epiretinal proliferation (LHEP) followed by spontaneous closure in patients with stage 2 idiopathic macular holes finds the surgical removal of ILM and LHEP may contribute to the successfulmacular hole closure after vitrectomy. Expand
Long-term outcome of macular microstructure assessed by optical coherence tomography in eyes with spontaneous resolution of macular hole.
TLDR
Spontaneous closure of MH could acquire complete anatomic reconstruction, however, delayed restoration of the IS/OS junction and persistent foveal detachment after spontaneous closure might influence the functional outcomes. Expand
NATURAL HISTORY OF FOVEOLAR LUCENCIES OBSERVED BY OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY AFTER MACULAR HOLE SURGERY
TLDR
Foveolar lucencies observed by optical coherence tomography are a common finding after macular hole surgery and gradually decrease and eventually resolve with time without additional surgical intervention and with further improvement of visual acuity. Expand
Spontaneous Evolution of Lamellar Macular Hole into Full Thickness Macular Hole, and Resolution of the Same, Followed by Optical Coherence Tomography
Aim: Aim of this study is to, with the aid of optical coherence tomography, follow and evaluate spontaneous evolution of lamellar macular hole into full thickness macular hole, and vice versa.Expand
Identification of visually significant operculum without macular hole by optical coherence tomography.
TLDR
This is the first reported case of the use of OCT to identify the presence of a visually significant operculum without an associated macular hole, and it is reported that this case illustrates the effectiveness of optical coherence tomography in identifying visually significant vitreoretinal interface opacities in the absence of a macular holes. Expand
Residual defect in the foveal photoreceptor layer detected by optical coherence tomography in eyes with spontaneously closed macular holes.
TLDR
In a series of 14 MHs that had closed spontaneously, a defect was seen in the photoreceptor IS-OS junction line, although VA improved in all eyes. Expand
Traumatic Macular Hole: Clinical Management and Optical Coherence Tomography Features
TLDR
Surgical management for TMH achieved better anatomical closure and improved visual outcomes, and vitrectomy is an effective treatment for TMW, exploring the relationship between OCT parameters and visual outcomes. Expand
Spontaneous closure of a myopic macular hole with retinal reattachment in an eye with high myopia and staphyloma: a case report
TLDR
In highly myopic eyes, the vitreoretinal traction force, which contributes to a macular hole and retinal detachment, could be partially released by the development of a lamellar hole or foveal schisis, which might contribute to retinal reattachment. Expand
Outer foveolar defect after surgery for idiopathic macular hole.
TLDR
Outer foveolar defects were detected predominantly after surgery for small MHs, and the defect decreases gradually in size and eventually disappears completely approximately 6 months after surgery. Expand

Optical coherence tomography images of spontaneous macular hole closure.
TLDR
The bridging of the protruding retinal tissue over the macular hole plays a key role in spontaneous macular holes closure, and this image confirms that the fovea eventually regained its normal configuration. Expand
Spontaneous closure of traumatic macular hole.
TLDR
Macular hole can be a result of severe damage from ocular concussion or damage to the retina, and for 6 months following injury, traumatic macular hole should probably be observed rather than surgically repaired, because of the possibility that the macular holes may close spontaneously. Expand
Prognosis of stage 2 macular holes.
TLDR
Even though vitreomacular separation may improve the prognosis of a macular hole, stage 2 lesions usually will develop an enlarged hole and decreased visual acuity. Expand
Spontaneous closure of traumatic macular hole.
TLDR
Eight patients with spontaneous closure of traumatic macular hole were males, with a mean age of 14.6 years (range, 11-21 years), and the major cause of blunt trauma was sports-related accidents, and contact lens biomicroscopy revealed a small, full-thickness macular Hole. Expand
Observations on patients with idiopathic macular holes and cysts.
TLDR
A favorable prognosis for normal fellow eyes of patients with macular holes or cysts and for eyes with cysts is suggested, although their natural history may not be as poor as previously thought. Expand
