Vitreous Detachment

Posterior Detachment

  • Vtreous gel inside the eye contracts as we get older
  • Vitreous membrane separates from the retina
  • Separation produces vitreous debris seen as "spots" by the patient
  • Traction at attachment points may produce symptoms of "flashes of light"

 

Treatment Options

  • Monitor the condition until the vitreous detachment stabilizes
  • Retinal consultation for prolonged vitreomacular traction or peripheral retinal disease
