If one eye has suddenly developed blurred vision and distortion in the center of vision, you may have developed a macular hole. The most common treatment for a macular hole is a vitrectomy surgery in the operating room.

Dr. Peddada removes the vitreous gel to stop it from pulling the retina. Then he carefully peels the inner layer or membrane on the retina, and fills the space where the vitreous gel used to be with a mixture of air and gas. Macular holes are commonly caused by:

  • Vitreous shrinkage/separation/traction on the central portion of the retina
  • Macular Pucker
  • Eye Injury


Contact our Auburn and Dothan Offices at (334) 521-0041 or our Columbus Office at (706) 221-9702 for a comprehensive evaluation and management of your retinal needs, including macular pucker surgery.

Clinic Update

Retina Updates

  • Macular Hole Repair Prognosis: We reviewed our surgical outcome data to predict the degree of visual acuity improvement based on the pre-operative visual acuity.
  • Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration: We are developing a new technique based on angiogram studies to assess why some eyes seem to respond more readily to treatment than others. Work is ongoing to provide clinical value to these methods.
