For mild symptoms, no treatment may be necessary, but if there is significant vision loss, vitrectomy surgery is recommended to remove scar tissue.
Macula Pucker symptoms include blurred central vision, distorted or “wavy” vision, difficulty reading or performing tasks that require detail vision, and gray or cloudy in the central vision.
As the vitreous begins to pull away from the retina, scar tissue may develop on the macula. The scar tissue may warp and contract, causing the retina to wrinkle or bulge.
Macula Pucker is when wrinkles, creases or bulges form in the macula.
