    Long-term Outcome of Macular Microstructure Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography in Eyes With Spontaneous Resolution of Macular Hole

    Purpose To evaluate the long-term anatomic features as assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with spontaneously closed full-thickness macular hole (MH). Design Retrospective, noncomparative, observational case series. Methods Six eyes of 6 patients who eventually showed spontaneous resolution of idiopathic MH were studied. The best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and OCT images of the fovea were examined before and until at least 3 years after spontaneous resolution. Results The MH closed spontaneously 1 to 4 months after the initial examination. There were 2 distinct macular abnormalities in the early period after spontaneous closure: 4 eyes showed outer foveal defects ...
