Abstract

Purpose: To describe 19 patients (20 eyes) who developed a macular hole (MH) after undergoing bilateral LASIK for the correction of myopia. Design: Noncomparative, interventional, retrospective, multicenter case series. Participants: Nineteen patients (20 eyes) who developed an MH after bilateral LASIK for the correction of myopia at 10 institutions in Venezuela, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Spain, and the United States. Methods: Chart review. Main Outcome Measure: Macular hole development. Results: The MH formed between 1 to 83 months after LASIK (mean, 12.1). In 60% of cases, the MH developed ≤6 months after LASIK, and in 30% of cases it developed
