RUIZ MIRANDA, Magdevis et al. Some current considerations on the diagnosis of the idiopathic macular hole. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.11, pp. 1621-1629. ISSN 1029-3019.
The idiopathic macular hole constitutes the most frequent cause of visit to the ophthalmological department due to a slow and progressive decrease of the central vision. The introduction of new technologies, as the optical coherence tomography, the microperimetry and the self fluorescence studies allow to know better this disease and they not only facilitate a greater morphological and functional recovery of the patients surgically treated, but also the clinical follow up of the contralateral eye. An exhaustive review of the biomedical literature on the topic was carried out aimed at creating an important study material for specialists and training personal about this eye alteration and to be able to evaluate more rigorously patients damaged by its effects.
