Macular pucker, the vitreomacular traction syndrome and the macular hole are three conditions related to the vitreomacular interface. The role of the vitreous is different for each of these syndromes. Vitreous surgery aims at improving vision in the first two conditions. The role of preventive vitrectomy in the impending macular hole syndrome is still a matter of debate. The authors report their own experience and give a review of the recent literature on the subject.
