wrinkle on the retina

The doctor noticed a wrinkle on the retina of one of mu eyes in July 2002 which did not affect my vision. About three weeks ago I noticed that vertical lines were distorted and my reading vision has been significantly decreased . An emergencydocor saw me on Nov 17 and told me that the wrinkle had increased. I will be seing my regular doctor on Monday.

I read that the treatment for the wrinkle (macular pucker) is an operation. Should this operation be made as soon as possible? If not, how long can it wait without creating irreversible effects?

Thanks, Carlos
