Abstract: Purpose of reviewAs Reese first described the vitreomacular traction (VMT) syndrome in 1970, the knowledge base about the disease has been changing over time due to the advent of the high-definition optical coherence tomography (HD-OCT). the aim of this article was to present the current information on the pathophysiology, anatomic macular abnormality associations, treatments, and new concepts in VMT syndrome.Recent findingsHD-OCT has provided unprecedented visualization of the vitreomacular interface, which has led to better comprehension of the VMT syndrome. the technologic advances also emphasized the need to review the basis of the VMT syndrome and define as yet unsettled and often confusing concepts.SummaryThe recognition of the role of VMT in a variety of macular conditions is imperative for proper diagnosis and appropriate management of these diseases.
