Epiretinal membrane

The epiterretiniana membrane is an eye disease that involves the development of a fibrous membrane area and high vision sensitivity of the retina, the macula. When this membrane shrinks and wrinkles produces a series of malfunctions in the retina with consequent alterations in sight. The most common symptoms are progressive visual loss (blurred vision) and distortion in reading images or text. This eye disease occurs in people over 50 years and appears unknown cause. In cases in which no symptoms are evident removal is not necessary (track through regular checks done alone), but in the most severe vitreoretinal surgery should be assessed.
