What is macular telangiectasis type 2?

Macular Telangiectasia Type 2 is a rare bilateral neurodegenerative disorder of the macula in the eye. It causes the blood vessels in the center of the macula to dilate and leak, which can cause central vision loss. Macular edema or thickening of the macula may also occur.
