Purpose: To assess the visual outcome of macular hole surgery in pseudophakic eyes. Methods:Retrospective review of a consecutive series of 105 pseudophakic/aphakic eyes undergoing pars plana vitrectomy for macular hole. Results:Average preoperative and postoperative visual acuities were 20/160 and 20/63, respectively (p<0.01). 45 eyes (43%) achieved an acuity of > 20/40 postoperatively. 72 eyes (69%) and 71 eyes (68%) experienced >2 and >3 lines of improvement postoperatively, respectively. Conclusions: The visual results of macular hole surgery without the confounding variable of pre and post–vitrectomy cataract are good.
