The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of postoperative posturing on the outcome of macular hole surgery. Current practice is divided; some individuals are advised to posture face-down for 10 days and others are advised that posturing is unnecessary. By evaluating the effect of posturing in a prospective randomised controlled trial the investigators hope to determine best practice, enabling surgeons and patients to make informed decisions regarding postoperative management.

This study is designed to verify hypothesis that early vitrectomy may prevent impending macular hole from progression to full-thickness macular hole.
Full-thickness macular Hole associated with macular detachment is a one of the maculopathies of high myopia. There is controversy in the primary treatment for this situation. This study wi...

The posture of an individual lying face down.
A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.
A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
A macular lesion on the side of the FACE, involving the CONJUNCTIVA and EYELIDS, as well as the adjacent facial skin, SCLERA; OCULOMOTOR MUSCLES; and PERIOSTEUM. Histological features vary from those of a MONGOLIAN SPOT to those of a BLUE NEVUS.
