Forty-six patients with uniocular macular holes and unaffected, fellow eyes were studied to evaluate inter- and intraocular associations between various objective tests of visual function and perceived visual ability. The affected eye had significant associations between visual acuity (VA) and the fovea threshold test, but for the fellow eye only VA and low-contrast VA 10% were associated. The reduction in visual acuity under low-contrast conditions relative to high-contrast did not differ between the affected eye and the healthy eye. Subjective visual ability seems to depend more on the visual acuity of the affected eye than the healthy eye.
