The natural course of full thickness macular hole is progression in size and stage. There have been reports of spontaneous closure of unilateral idiopathic full thickness macular holes, but we report the first case of spontaneous closure of a full thickness macular hole in one eye in a patient with bilateral idiopathic full thickness macular holes. After macular hole surgery in the left eye of the patient, spontaneous closure of the macular hole in the right eye was observed during the follow-up period.
