An idiopathic macular hole is an anatomic defect of the neurosensory retina that develops in the fovea. In this report, we present three macular hole cases that are refractory standard macular hole surgery and treated with AM transplantation (AMT). We reached anatomical success in all three cases without any complications or adverse effects. AMT is effective in achieving satisfactory hole closure for cases that are refractory standard surgery.

Keywords: Amnoitic membrane, macular hole, retina pigment epithelial cell.
