Posterior Vitreous Detachment           


Also known as PVD, It is the separation of the vitreus from the retina. Commonly occuring in middle age, the vitreous gel of the eye may start to thicken or shrink, and may form clumps or strands inside the eye. The vitreous begins to pull away from the back wall of the eye, causing a posterior vitreous detachment and creating flashes.



Posterior vitreous detachment is more common in:

· People who are nearsighted;

· People who have undergone cataract operations;

· Those who had YAG laser surgery of the eye, or;

· Have had inflammation inside the eye.
