Hello
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr Dadapeer k an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.
I reviewed your history.

A s far as my knowledge goes, Retinal hole cannot be cured by acupuncture.
Retinal hole depending on the location requires treatment.

A retinal hole in the periphery requires treatment by laser. A retinal hole in the centre in the macula requires treatment by surgery.

Hence I advice you to consult your ophthalmologist for examination to find out the type of retinal hole and treatment accordingly.
