Full thickness macular hole patients undergoing, three port pars plana vitrectomy, ILM peel and phacoemulsification with lens implant. The audit compared anatomical closure and visual outcomes. Eleven out of 16 (69%) patients had a pre-operative best corrected visual acuity of 0.62 or worse on log-mar scale. Nine out of 16 (56%) patients had post-operative best corrected visual acuity of 0.30 or better.
