With PVD does the visual clouding move around in my vision or stay stationary?
Patients with symptomatic PVD (posterior vitreous detachment) will develop a floater or suspended tissue that casts a shadow on the retina and can be perceived as a cobweb, horseshoe or the like. For most patients, this will move as the eye moves. If your visual clouding does not move, this is less likely related to the PVD and should prompt a further examination by your ophthalmologist.
