Hi doctor,

My eye doctor found small lacquer cracks near the center of my right eye. What does it mean? What are the risks? I am very nearsighted. Please explain.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com. 

  • Lacquer crack means that there is break in Bruch's membrane.
  • It is a significant finding as you are at risk of getting CNVM (choroidal neovascular membranes), which means new blood vessels will start forming. They will be fragile and may damage retina.
