These patients were divided in two equal groups Group A (patient who underwent PPV and ILM peel with AIR tamponade) and Group B (patient who underwent PPV and ILM peel with SF6 or c3f8 GAS tamponade). Results: Both of the groups show improvement in visual at the end of follow-up. Patients in group A showed improvement of 0.48 and group B patients showed improvement 0.41 logMAR BCVA at the end of follow-up. Only one patient in group A and one patients in group B had an open macular hole at end of follow-up on OCT. Closure rate was 90.% in each group.
