Abstract

Purpose:

To report a blue laser-induced full thickness macular hole (FTMH) with delayed spontaneous closure without surgical intervention.

Observations:

A 14-year old male developed full thickness macular hole after momentary exposure to a high-power handheld blue laser device. The macular hole closed spontaneously over a long period of observation.

Conclusion:

Despite an initial enlargement in size, small FTMH caused by blue lasers may close spontaneously over an extended period of observation.

KEYWORDS:
