Macular pucker is a condition where a thin, clear layer of cells grow across the retina. Patients who have macular pucker may not notice any change in their vision or may notice distortion or blurriness that gradually worsens. Most cases of macular pucker only require observation, but in moderate to severe cases, surgery can be performed by a retinal specialist to address this issue. Moderate to severe cases of macular pucker can cause traction on the retina, which can lead to swelling. This degrades vision.
If you notice any distortions in your vision, macular pucker (also known as an epiretinal membrane) may be to blame. Other conditions like macular degeneration or diabetic eye disease could also cause similar symptoms, which may require treatment.
