Myopic maculopathy occurs in myopias over 6 diopters and can have different forms:

  • Geographical atrophy of the pigmented epithelium of the retina.
  • Fuchs spot.
  • Subretinal hemorrhages.
  • Macular hole.

In all forms the central vision in the macular region is blurred and vision is noticeably reduced. If the maculopathy is accompanied by hemorrhages, then the loss of vision is even greater and needs to be monitored. Over time, vision is limited and the use of special low-vision glasses becomes necessary.

The patient can again perform daily activities, such as watching TV, reading, while at the same time with the systematic effort with the special glasses the vision is initially stabilized and later improved.
