Vitreomacular traction causes central visual impairment, either in the form of a generalised blurring, or distortion.
Some patients experience virtually no effect on their eyesight, while others report substantial changes to their vision.
Age is the biggest causal factor in vitreomacular traction. As we get older, the clear gel inside our eyes (the vitreous) begins to shrink and pull away from the retina at the back of our eyes. This tension can lead to distortion in the central part of our vision.
Opting to have surgery for vitreomacular traction is very much a case-by-case decision. As we analyse your eyes, we will be able to give you the right information you need to make the choice.
