Ray Man, the PA to Mahi Muqit, said “When the vitreous gel pulls away from the macular, some may remain stuck, pulling on the surface which distorts the macular structure, this is VMT (Vitreomacular Traction). This is a slow progression and usually has no or very mild symptoms, which can worsen as the traction increases, which can cause distorted or blurred vision. “
If there are no symptoms and the vision is not affected in patients with VMT, then the specialist will usually monitor the eye and there is no treatment needed. There will be follow-up examinations, which monitor how the condition worsens. Often patients will be offered vitreoretinal surgery, called vitrectomy. This releases the fraction and is a painless surgery that is offered as an outpatient procedure, enabling patients to recover in the comfort of their own homes.
The surgery outcome is determined by the severity of the condition and how long the patient had it before surgery. Not all patients regain their sight and not everyone experiences a normal vision, even when the surgery is successful. Most patients will regain some of their lost sight over a few weeks to months post-surgery.
