Dear robinkol1,

I would recommend that you speak with your retinal specialist to determine whether you have any traction surrounding the holes.  This is often a reason for the need for treatment in a patient with lattice.  Also, ask for the benefits and risks of this procedure.  If you do not feel comfortable, seek a second opinion.
