What is Macular Epiretinal Membrane?

The macular epiretinal membrane is a tissue that grows on the surface of the retina in the macular area, which is the fundamental area for vision. When this membrane contracts and wrinkles, it causes progressive deformation of the retina with consequent visual impairment.


· Slight distortion of images and/or wavy lines. ·Blurred vision in the central region of the field of vision. · Distorted vision: Straight lines are perceived as wavy.

· Scotomas: Missing lines.


In milder cases, surveillance can be considered, with regular check-ups. However, when vision worsens and images become distorted and the normal anatomy of the macula deteriorates, surgery should be considered.
