What is lacquer crack and how can it be treated?

Q: I am a 29 years old male suffering from myopia. Recently, the doctor has found lacquer cracks in my eyes. What are these and how can they be treated? Will it cause complete vision loss?

A:Lacquer cracks are present in high myopia and can lead to choroidal neovascularisation and macular haemorrhage, which in turn can cause central visual loss but it is not very common. You cannot do any thing to prevent it but eye specialist may do further investigation like fluorescein angiography or ocular coherence tomography (OCT) and may decide on treatment.
