Close follow up: Macular pucker can occur as a consequence of spontaneous pucker. There are procedures that can be done to help eliminate this but they carry some risk so usually the retinal surgeons who do this will wait for a level of lowered vision that is significant or note progression as a reason to intervene. The glaucoma is a separate issue for both eyes. These conditions should be closely monitored.
