Vitreomacular Traction - Causes and Risk Factors

What causes vitreomacular traction?
As we grow older, the gel-like vitreous in the eye usually becomes more liquefied, causing it to pull on the retina. This pulling (or traction) causes wrinkling of the retinal surface or distortion of the retinal blood vessels, which lead to vision loss.
