Nacular hole
I have a macular hole and need an operation. I am worried about the face down period. Do you have any tips to make that period a little bit easier?

Hi Elize
What worries you about the face down period - talk to an occupational therapist - they have interesting ways with mirrors etc to help you keep your face down and watch TV or see other people in the room etc.
