Is there any treatment for a macular pucker other than surgery? My doctor had mentioned that there was a new medication for it.
The new medication, Jetrea, is an option for a select group of patients with macular pucker who previously could only be treated with surgery. Whether you are a candidate for Jetrea depends on the status of the vitreous and the size of the macular pucker. Most patients with macular pucker are not candidates for Jetrea.
