What is Vitreomacular Adhesion (VMA)? is an eye condition related to aging that can lead to complications and vision loss. About 500,000 people in the America are affected by symptomatic VMA.
When the vitreous (the gel that fills the inside of the eye) begins to shrink and liquefy, it can become stuck to the retina and begin to pull leading to VMA. This condition can affect vision significantly.
