Nerve fiber pattern: Bitemporal hemianopia is the classic later stage vision pattern in advancing pituitary tumor. Generally the central fibers, which carry the best acuity are affected later in the condition. A great deal of vision loss would have to be ignored by someone with this condition before the nerve fibers for the central acuity start to drop out. ...Read more
Lt.eye mac.pucker.Corrected vision 20/40 µpsia.Amsler grid nl.Corrected vision 20/40.Age 69.Could the macuar pucker cause micropsia?Rt. eye20/30.
Micropsia: Yes, it can if the macular pucker is severe enough. Micropsia is a condition in which objects are perceived to be smaller than they actually are. Micropsia can be caused by optical factors (such as wearing glasses), by distortion of images in the eye (such as optically, via swelling of the cornea or from changes in the shape of the retina such as from retinal edema,macular degeneration, and more ...Read more
Progressive macular pucker 20/30 vision, distortion & glaucoma. Visual fIeld good,nerve damage 30-45%.Would vitrectomy cause glaucoma to progress?
Possible: Vitrectomy and glaucoma may have an association. It is suspected that glaucoma occurs more often in patients who have had vitrectomy and subsequent cataract surgery. An ongoing clinical trial is aimed to answer this question with more clarity. PROVE Study. http://www.aaojournal.org/article/S0161-6420(14)00344-3/references AND https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01162356 ...Read more

Epiretinal membrane: Macular pucker or Epiretinal membrane is caused in many conditions eg. Trauma, Vitreius or Retinal detachment, Diabetes or Retinal vascular episodes Condition can progress to Macular hole and cause visual distortion. Surgical treatment is Vitrectomy and excision if any tension strands. Surgery us not recommended till vision is 20/200! Or worse.

Macular pucker.with distortion. Close-up vision great, distance vision not as good. Could macular pucker impair distance vision only and not close up?
Not likely : Macular pucker affects the retina which detects images at any distance. The lens and cornea focus images at various distances onto the retina. So a problem at only one distance usually is a problem other than the retina. However, some people may only notice distortion from a macular pucker at a particular distance. A review of your records/images would help clarify. ...Read more

Monocular Diplopia, halos, and glare. Ghosting images, blurry far away. 3 eye doctors said eyes healthy, MRI said brain healthy. What could it be?
Monocular Diplopia: Monocular Diplopia is almost always due to something in that eye: cataract (PSC), irregular astigmatism (send us copy of your Pentacam), irregular nerve (send us copy of your nerve photos and HRT and HVF), and/or tear film abnormality (send us copy of your Lipiscan). Consult with us to help solve this issue. ...Read more
Is macular degeneration the same as retinal degeneration? My eye reports says Bilateral: Defect is consistent with retinal degeneration. I'm 33.
Not really: Macular degeneration is a type of retinal degeneration found in the senior population that affects only the center of vision. Many other types of retinal degeneration exist from congenital, to acquired, from hereditary to environmental and from severe to minimal. I would be happy to interpret the report if you send me more details. ...Read more
Advanced Macular pucker & stable glaucoma in 1 eye. 2nd eye mild ERM. What is prognosis for adequate vision. Concerned that both eyes have disease.
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. ...Read more
