      Pauline, this is an old slide from my collection. I do not remember the exact circumstances however there was a time when laser to the cuff of the hole was published, ( 1987) before we did macular hole PPV, to attempt to reduce the fluid cuff( usually less laser than this). This may also have been a case that had vitrectomy for recurrent RD with a macular hole.

      Interesting - why laser? Did the patient have a vitrectomy as well?
