Retinal Round Hole


Anything that damages your retina can cause a retinal round hole. Examples include an eye injury or eye infection. Most retinal round holes heal without treatment. If your retina does not heal on its own, you may need surgery to fix it.


Contact your healthcare provider if:

  • You have a sudden change in your vision or loss of vision.
  • You have eye pain.
  • You see more floaters or flashes of light than usual.
  • You have questions or concerns about your condition or care.

Follow up with your healthcare provider as directed:

You will need to return for an eye exam to make sure your retina is healing. Write down your questions so you remember to ask them during your visits.
