Retinal Tears, Detachments, and Macular Problems



The eye is like a camera with lenses in front and film in the back. The film is called the retina. The center of the eye is filled with a gel called vitreous. Over time, the vitreous becomes more watery, and after a while the back skin i=of the gel can pull away from the retinal surface. This can tear or detach the retina. It can also irritate the surface of the macula, the reading area, causing scar tissue to form or even tear a hole in the macula. These problems can all be treated as described below.
