Abstract
Macular hole formation is a well-known complication following ocular trauma. Less commonly recognized is the spontaneous closure of such holes. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and clinical follow-up enabled monitoring of this resolution during a period of a few weeks. We describe a case of spontaneous closure of a Traumatic macular hole (TMH) with complete visual recovery of a 12-year-old boy, and we will show the follow-up of the macular hole obtained using the OCT. Observation for a period of up to 12 months is a reasonable management option. Macular hole surgery for traumatic macular holes may be delayed in such cases.
