    Question Macular Hole Decision

    I recently was diagnosed with a macular hole in my right eye. As expected the opthamologist recommended surgery including a vitrectomy that requires the patient to lie in a face-down position every day for two weeks or more. I would like to hear feedback or suggestions from anyone who has gone through this agonizing process, whether using the gas bubble procedure or the silicone oil procedure (that does not require the post-operative prone business). But, more importantly, I would especially like to hear from those who chose to forego surgery and have chosen to live with the hole due to age and a variety of other factors, including the possibility of the hole remaining stable or even resealing naturally.
