Question:
I have a retinal scar, so my central vision is very poor from my left eye. Is there any treatment to remove the scar from the retina and improve vision?

Answer:
It depends on the type and location of the scar. Scars on the surface of the retina can be removed with some visual recovery. Scars located within or under the retina often cannot be repaired. A detailed examination is necessary to determine if you may be a candidate for surgery.
