    Macular Hole Formation Secondary to Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Demonstrated With Optical Coherence Tomography

    The author presents two cases of macular hole (MH) retinal detachment in non-myopic eyes for which optical coherence tomography demonstrated a detached macula and a nearly full-thickness MH with only the elongated outer segments connecting at the fovea. Such images have rarely been observed in cases of MH retinal detachment in highly myopic eyes or secondary to vitreomacular traction. This implies that MH may form secondary to a macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, as it may result from the pushing forces of the subretinal fluid involving the macula.
