Figure 2: Movement of the retinal vessels after macular hole is closed. This is a 56-year-old female (patient #4) with a stage 4 macular hole in her left eye (A). Confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy images before surgery (A) and 3 (B), 6 (C), and 12 months (D) after surgery were presented. Images on 3 and 12 months were transformed into false red color (B and D). After the macular hole was closed, small vessels in the superior, inferior, and temporal sides of the hole all moved toward the optic nerve head (black arrows). Retinal vessels in the nasal side of the hole also moved toward the optic nerve head (black arrow heads). The vascular arcades were fixed (white arrows) (E). The vascular movements were obvious on 3 months (E) and stabilized thereafter (F and G).
