    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Following cataract surgery which I thought was successful, I began to have problems with one of my eyes. I have now been diagnosed with vitelliform lesions in that eye. Is it the same thing as macular dystrophy? Has anyone had this diagnosis? Do you know what is down the road when you have this situation? Although it falls under the heading of macular degeneration, I have been told eye drops nor surgery would be helpful, Thanks
