What is the Treatment for Vitreomacular Traction?
October 7, 2010
I’ve recently been diagnosed with vitreomacular traction [Ed. - a condition in which the vitreous gel has an abnormally strong adhesion to the retina]. I was told to wait a couple months and return for follow-up.
My vision seems to be very slowly getting worse as far as reading numbers on my computer and especially black ink on white paper.
What is the difference between this condition and macular degeneration, and are these two conditions ever mistakenly diagnosed one for the other? Is waiting the two months the recommended and optimal treatment? Thank you.
