What is a macular pucker?
With a macular pucker, things can look wavy, or you may have trouble seeing details. You might notice a gray or cloudy area in your central vision. You may even have a blank spot in your central vision. Macular pucker will not affect your peripheral (side) vision.
Is treatment available?
This often improves the vision and relieves the distortion. The scar tissue can grow back, but this does not happen very often. Statistically, most patients recover half of their vision after this surgery. As with all surgeries, the risks, benefits, and alternatives must always be considered.
