• Can PVD cause a haze that clears eventually?


    Question:

    Can posterior vitreous detachment create a haze in the eye that is clear, yet a little foggy; and, if so, will that eventually clear up, assuming no other problems?


    Answer:

    In some cases, there can be condensation or opacity in the vitreous gel inside the eye that causes some haze or fog following the posterior vitreous detachment. In most cases, this opacity will either reabsorb, move out of the central vision or the brain will adapt to it. However, that is not always the case.

    Make sure that you have had a comprehensive eye exam to be sure there are no other potential causes for the fogginess that you are experiencing.
