Trou maculaire et traitement par chirurgie de pars plana vitrectomie

Dr Michael Kapusta, MD, FRSCS, ophtalmologiste, parle de ce qu'est un trou ou une ouverture maculaire et le traitement par chirurgie de pars plana vitrectomie.
Le centre de la rétine s’appelle la macula. Avec le vieillissement du vitré de l’œil, il est possible que le vitré décolle et la traction qui va suivre va causer un trou dans le centre de la macula. Le décollement du vitré peut continuer et parfois, mais rarement, le trou maculaire peut se corriger tout seul. En général le trou de la macula va s’agrandir et il y aura une perte de vision progressive. Alors, si vous avez un trou maculaire, il est urgent de voir un chirurgien en rétine qui va suggérer fortement une opération pour essayer de corriger et regagner ainsi une portion de la vision qui a été perdue.
