This report describes a lamellar macular hole formation subsequent to intravitreal bevacizumab injection for the treatment of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) by age-related macular degeneration. A 67-year-old woman with bilateral CNV underwent 3 monthly intravitreal bevacizumab injections in her both eyes. One month after the third bilateral injection, vision loss happened. Optical coherence tomography performed for further evaluation that showed reduction of intra- and sub-retinal fluid associated with lamellar macular hole development in both eyes. Although macular hole formation, especially bilateral form, is a rare complication of intravitreal injections, surgeons should consider macular hole development in cases with vision deterioration following intravitreal bevacizumab injection.
