The macula is the area of the retina that serves our central vision. This patient has a scar in the center of his left macula (small whitish area in the center of the top picture). The bottom shows his normal right eye macula. Surprisingly, this patient see’s 20/20. This kind of scar can come from sun starring when a child. Or there may be other causes. It is unlikely to cause problems in the future for this patient.
