Epiretinal Membranes is a condition that causes distortion of the central vision. A very fine layer of cells grow on the surface of the macula and distort its normal structure. This condition is often slow in progression, and it can be corrected with surgery. The retina surgeon will be able to remove the fine membrane with microsurgical instruments in an outpatient setting allowing you to recuperate in the comfort of your home over the course of a few weeks. Most often the distortion will improve slowly over the ensuing months.
