This document describes a proposed data set for macular hole surgery. The data set has been composed by a subcommittee of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists Informatics and Audit Sub-committee, comprising a representative selection of experts in vitreoretinal surgery working in different healthcare environments across the UK. The authors have a great deal of experience not only in the management of macular holes, but also in audit, electronic data collection, and research. The British and Eire Association of Vitreoretinal Surgeons (BEAVRS) gave their input through the BEAVRS Board, and were closely involved in drawing up the dataset.
