A 28-year-old male presented to retina clinic with complains of blurring and distortion in right eye for past 1 week. There was history of implantation of phakic intraocular lens (pIOL) bilaterally 4 months back. Ophthalmic examination revealed a full-thickness macular hole in the right eye. Pars plana vitrectomy with inverted internal limiting membrane flap was planned. Post-operatively, patient had a good gain in vision (20/40) with closure of the hole. Macular hole is an unusual complication of pIOL. A detailed pre-operative fundus screening is indispensable. Early presentation and timely intervention can optimize the visual outcome.
