In many cases, people adjust to the mild vision distortion and blurriness, since it does not affect activities of daily life, such as reading and driving. In more severe cases where significant blurring of vision develops, a surgery called a vitrectomy is performed to improve the contour of the macula over time.
Treatment is not always required, as about 20% of macular holes will seal themselves. If treatment is required, vitrectomy surgery is recommended in order to remove the vitreous gel in the back of the eye.

Our retina specialists may choose from a variety of treatment options including laser treatments and intravitreal injections.
There are various ways to treat eye tumors, depending on the diagnosis, size, and aggressiveness of the tumor. Certain small tumors may respond to laser treatment or freezing (cryosurgery).
