Symptoms of a Macular Pucker

With a macular pucker, you may notice that your central vision is blurry or slightly distorted, and straight lines might appear wavy. You may have difficulty seeing fine detail and reading small print. There may be a gray or cloudy area in the center of your vision, or perhaps even a blind spot. Vision loss due to a macular pucker can range from no loss to severe sight impairment, though severe vision loss is uncommon.

Contact your Retina Vitreous Associates Ophthalmologist if you notice any of these symptoms.
