Vitreomacular Traction


In later stages of life, the vitreous body begins to liquify and shrink, causing a fluid filled space to form at the back of the viterous chamber. In some cases the vitreal cortex, or hyaloid membrane, can adhere to the macula and optic disc, causing a pulling or traction of the retina. The traction is released by circumferentially cutting the hyaloid membrane and then removing the vitreous body.
