You probably had a retinal exam before the OCT. You may have vitreous traction on the macula (VMT). You need to discuss this with your doctor is any other changes were noted. The VMT is followed before surgery or injection of a drug.
Yea the retina was checked and all looked ok.
Can this be fixed and the floater removed? I can live with it but id rather it be gone, or at least not get worse
yes, if it is VMT. I would wait months before removal of the floaters. They tend to get better with time. Also, a vitrectomy for VMT or floaters can cause a cataract.
So i had a call from the hospital. Apparently the retinal surgeon (who had worked at Moorfields for 2 years) has seen the scans and my entire past records and put me on a long waiting list to be seen.
His secretary said that he said its not urgent and surgery is very unlikely as the bump is so tiny. So we are likely talking weeks to be seen by him as its so miniscule.
Which leaves me unsure how to feel, should i feel good that its not apparently urgent, or bad that i still dont know the cause. But it is on my macula which scares me. What could it possibly be?
