It is fairly common.  Treatment depends on severity.  Sometime prednisone and NSAID can help as well as Avastin.   If these fail, surgery can removed the wrinkle--epiretinal membrane.

I had glaucoma surgery (trab) and had some lower pressures. My central vision started to be challenged and it appears I have a retinal wrinkle. Would these same recommendations above apply?
