Vitreomacular Traction

Vitreomacular Traction - What it is

Vitreomacular traction (VMT) is a condition in which the vitreous (the clear gel-like substance in the eye) pulls abnormally on the retina (the innermost layer of the eye responsible for sensing light and forming visual images) and the macula (the region of the retina that is most important for central vision). When this distorts and stretches the macula, it can cause symptoms of blurred central vision and distortion of images.
