A Macular Pucker is scar tissue that has formed on the eye’s Macula, located in the center of the light-sensitive tissue called the retina. The Macula provides the sharp, central vision we need for reading, driving, and seeing fine detail. A Macular Pucker can cause blurred and distorted central vision.

In many cases it becomes necessary to remove the scar tissue from the macula to prevent further vision loss.  This could currently only be done by surgery. Like with many eye conditions, early detection and prevention is key.
