Vitreomacular Traction - What it is

Vitreomacular traction is a condition in which the vitreous (the gel-like substance in the eye) pulls abnormally on the retina (the light-sensitive innermost layer of the eye responsible for processing visual images).

When the pulling of the gel distorts the retina, it causes swelling and decreased vision.
