In brief: Retinal specialist

Macular holes (a defect in the center of the retina) are common, most often affect middle-aged women, and can often be repaired with restoration of vision.
The proper specialist for this operation is an ophthalmologist specializing in vitreo-retinal surgery, often just called a retinal specialist. The success rate of surgery is good, and the post-op period may require some face down positioning.

In brief: Retinal surgeon

Specialists termed retinal surgeons, ophthalmologists who diagnose and treat diseases of the back of the eyes, are best qualified to treat this condition.
Most retinal surgeons are located in larger cities and major medical centers.
