Macular hole retinal detachment (MHRD) for the most part develops in highly myopic eyes. Several surgical methods have been introduced to treat MHRD. We describe our experience with the autologous retinal transplant in patient with MHRD. A 49-year-old female presented with a 2-week history of a sudden decrease in the central vision in the right eye (RE).
