What is an epiretinal membrane?

An epiretinal membrane is a type of scar tissue that grows on the surface of the retina. Often, it grows over the central part of the retina, called the macula.

What problems are caused by scar tissue?

The scar tissue may contract, causing the retina to wrinkle. This may cause some visual loss, as well as distorted or double vision.
