Will my retina function differently after a vitreous detachment?
APR 17, 2019
The liquefied vitreous fluid has no adverse effect on the retina. Most people will have a separation of the vitreous gel from the surface of the retina at some point in their life. Typically, there is no disturbance of retinal function.
However, in some cases, PVD can lead to retinal tear/detachment. If you notice a sudden change in number or appearance of floaters and/or flashes, or have a decrease in your vision, see your ophthalmologist immediately.
