vitelliform macular lesions
An_248763 posted:
ollowing cataract surgery of both eyes, I started having trouble (double vision when reading the eye chart and inability to see as clearly as I had right after the surgery). I have now been diagnosed with vitelliform lesions in my eye. It was explained that having cataract surgery is like having your windows washed, this condtion was there before surgery but not visible. Has anyone else experienced this diagnosis? Is it also called macular dystrophy? What is the prognosis? Thanks
Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
Vitelliform describes the central retina (macula) when it has an egg yolk appearance. This can be an inherited condition which appears early in life or there are other conditions called vitelliform-like that have a similar appearance but are not the inherited condition.

Vitelliform retinal problems are unusual enough that you should seek the consultation of a retinal specialist. It will require a much more specific and individualized exam and diagnosis to accurately answer your questions about prognosis.

Find a retinal specialist by going to and press the "Find an Eye MD" tab on the top and search for "retina" and your location.
