Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

The doctor may mean you may have a macular hole developing in your eye. The macula is a very precise spot on the retina at the back of the eye where clear, color vision comes into focus. A hole in the macular is more common after age 60 and can cause permanent loss of vision. See your eye doctor to find out about treatment options.
