Vitreomacular Traction

Macula is the small area at the center of the retina, which consists of a thin tissue that lines at the posterior chamber of the eye. The macula is the most sensitive part of the retina. Macula helps us read and do detailed visual tasks.

Vitreomacular traction happens when the thick vitreous gel that fills the eye, shrinks and pulls away from the macula. This condition may happen to many people as the eye ages.
