Epiretinal Membrane

Retinal damage can occur in the form of a pucker or wrinkle caused by an epiretinal membrane. Under adverse conditions such as an immune response, a thin layer of cells covering the retina surface forms and may draw together pulling the vitreous away from the retina and creating a wrinkle in the retina surface. Wikipedia reports that not only can a pucker result, but swelling such as macular edema may occur as well.

Such damage effects vision similarly to that brought about by macular degeneration; both can arise due to changes in the vitreous. If the retina is damaged, the process of healing may leave a scar in the form of the epiretinal membrane.

I simply want to thank you for these eye products. I've been using the ones you suggested for epiretinal membrane. Recently I had my regular eye checkup and was told that my vision acuity is very good and that my eyes look healthy. The ERM is still there in one eye and though it has effected my vision in that eye it bothers me little and has not progressed.

And my eyes feel better to me - not as tired and weakened. My move to Santa Fe has really taught me a lot about the need to care for my vision. The products and resting my eyes when needed and using the Magic Eye exercises have helped tremendously with my vision, and unsurprisingly, my nervous system.
Thank you!     K.W., Santa Fe, NM

Causes

Often, the membranes are seen following a posterior vitreous detachment (where the vitreous gel that fills the eye becomes more liquid, causing a strain on tissues that in turn causes a separation from the retinal lining of the eye). Occasionally an epiretinal membrane can appear without any obvious underlying cause.

Non-nerve retinal cells (glia) multiply along the inner surface of the retina lining. Small defects allow them to push through to the inner surface between the retina and the vitreous fluid and build a thin wall of tissue that can fold and pucker, distorting the macula. Membranes are seen with many retinal vascular conditions, retinal detachments and breaks, trauma to the eye, inflammation of the uvea (uveitis), and following retinal and intraocular surgery.
