To report three eyes surgically managed for stage 4B/stage 5 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) with successful retinal reattachment resulting in macular hole formation after 2–3 months. One patient was observed, and two patients underwent membrane dissection and silicone oil injection and maintained attached retina at last follow-up. The case series is novel to present internal limiting membrane peeling around macular hole with hole closure in one patient which is hitherto not reported. Two of the three eyes received intravitreal bevacizumab injection for aggressive posterior ROP before surgical intervention.
