Next, Indre visits eye surgeon and founder/director of the Retina Macula Institute Dr. Ron Gallemore to discuss macular holes. He says the spontaneous closure of macular holes have been reported, but they are rare. "Some patients will form scar tissue and that scar tissue is a way to heal," he says. "I do have patients who have had spontaneous closure of their holes and have recovered 20/20 vision. But I've seen two in 20 years."

"It turns out that a macular hole healing itself is not medically inexplicable, just extremely rare," says Indre.
