When the vitreous humour shrinks, the strong attachment results in a pulling force on the retina, which may lead to visual distortion, decreased visual acuity and central blindness. When the disease progresses the traction may eventually result in the formation of a hole in the macula (called a macular hole).JETREA ® breaks down the protein fibers which cause the abnormal traction between vitreous and macula that causes VMT. By dissolving these proteins, JETREA ® releases the traction, and helps to complete the detachment of the vitreous from the macula.
