Can I get a vitreous detachment from a hard fall?
MAR 15, 2018
It is possible to get a vitreous detachment after a hard fall, but almost all vitreous detachments happen on their own. If you have recently developed a vitreous detachment, it is more likely unrelated to your hard fall. If you haven’t done so already, see a doctor who can evaluate your injuries. If you are having symptoms of a vitreous detachment, see an ophthalmologist. He or she can check for damage to the retina, which can lead to vision loss if not treated.
