At Retina Care Consultants, P.A., we are experts at problems involving the macula. The macula is the center of the retina where vision is the sharpest. It’s a crucial part of the eye because it’s that light that allows us to accomplish tasks such as reading or driving.
A macular hole is caused by pulling forces exerted on the retina by the jelly (a.k.a. vitreous) inside the eye. Risk factors for macular hole include age, myopia (near-sightedness) and history of macular hole in the other eye. The most common symptom of macular hole is painless blurring of central vision. This loss of vision may progress slowly and go unnoticed when it occurs in only one eye.
If you’ve developed a macular hole or think you need macular hole surgery in Sarasota or Manatee county, we can help.
