Introduction: Vitreous detachment
Vitreous detachment is the separation of the eye's
internal clear gel (vitreous) from the
eye wall or retinal.
A posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is a common problem of aging that may not require any treatment,
other than watching for symptoms of the more serious problems such as retinal tear or retinal detachment.
PVD usually occurs around age 40-70 or 50-70, but people with myopia (short-sightedness), especially high-degree,
may get a PVD earlier.
