Epiretinal Membranes are also known as cellophane retinopathy and macular puckers.
The macula, located at the back of our eyes, is responsible for reading vision. In the macula, the retina lies flat on the back of the eye.
The epiretinal membrane is a layer of cells that forms on the macula’s surface and contracts the retina causing it to wrinkle. The retina wrinkling can cause it to swell and straight lines to appear curved, leading to decreased vision. Vitrectomy surgery and epiretinal membrane removal can be used to treat wrinkling and swelling.
