Macular Telangiectasia Symptoms
In the early stages, people with MacTel will have no symptoms.
As the disease progresses, you may have blurring, distorted vision, and loss of central vision. You may need brighter light to read or perform other functions. Loss of central vision progresses over a period of 10 – 20 years. Macular telangiectasia does not affect side vision and does not usually cause total blindness.
Because MacTel has no early symptoms, it is important to get regular eye exams. This allows your ophthalmologist to detect any macular problems as early as possible.
