Macular Pucker Information
A macular pucker is a term that refers to scar tissue that has formed on the macula, the part of the retina that provides sharp, central vision. Blurry vision and vision loss are two of the most common symptoms. Other possible symptoms may include:
- Mildly distorted vision
- Difficulty seeing fine detail and reading small print
- Gray area in center of vision.
Because the symptoms are similar to those of other eye conditions (such as macular degeneration), an eye exam will be needed to make a firm diagnosis.
