If one eye has suddenly developed blurred vision and distortion in the center of vision, you may have developed a macular hole. The most common treatment for a macular hole is a vitrectomy surgery in the operating room.
Dr. Peddada removes the vitreous gel to stop it from pulling the retina. Then he carefully peels the inner layer or membrane on the retina, and fills the space where the vitreous gel used to be with a mixture of air and gas. Macular holes are commonly caused by:
- Vitreous shrinkage/separation/traction on the central portion of the retina
- Macular Pucker
- Eye Injury
