Macular hole with a concomitant macular detachment is unusual in emmetropic eyes. A middle aged women was operated for a full thickness macular hole with inverted flap technique. There was persistence of subretinal fluid for 4 months even after the hole was successfully closed. A second surgery was performed to remove the highly viscous subretinal fluid. This report highlights the technical difficulties in managing such cases. This case also highlights the need for recognition of coexisting pathologies before deciding the surgery.
