In fact, OCT is the 'gold standard' for detecting vitreous detachment
, which can cause retinal detachment.
20pm patient's retina shows no damage but a posterior vitreous detachment
, where the membrane separates from the retina.
In idiopathic ERMs, it is probable that the development of a spontaneous posterior vitreous detachment
(PVD) causes micro-trauma at the retinal surface particularly at points that generally have a stronger vitreoretinal adhesion such as the vitreofoveal interface and optic disc; this allows Muller cells to migrate through the microscopic breaks onto the retinal surface and contribute to the development of an ERM.
Posterior vitreous detachment
, a condition that occurs in three-quarters of people over 65 and is the result of changes in the jelly-like liquid as the eye gets older.
Serious side effects related to the injection procedure are rare but can occur including infection inside the eye, retinal detachment, cataract, increased pressure in the eye, and vitreous detachment
Write to him at Dr Neil, Sunday Mail, One Central Quay, Glasgow G3 8DA The eye clinic told me I had vitreous detachment
but not to worry.
One of the topics in this session will be to explore whether pharmacological vitreolysis has the potential to induce total posterior vitreous detachment
without the need for surgery.
0% or more) reported in patients receiving EYLEA were conjunctival hemorrhage, eye pain, vitreous detachment
, cataract, vitreous floaters, and increased intraocular pressure.
Coverage also includes understanding and treating refractive, eye movement, and alignment disorders, and disorders of the cornea, conjunctiva, sclera, iris, pupil, macula, optic nerve, retina, vitreous, and uvea, such as cataracts, conjunctivitis, pink eye, macular degeneration, uveitis, iritis, vitreous detachment
, floaters, and glaucoma, and eyeglasses and contact lenses, LASIK and LASEK surgery, photorefractive keratectomy surgery, and phakic intraocular lenses.
Problems remain with the purely mechanical surgery however, and enzymes have been developed that cleave the vitreoretinal junction without damaging the retina, allowing vitreolysis and the induction of posterior vitreous detachment
Scar tissue may form on the macula due to conditions such as vitreous detachment
(in which the aging vitreous breaks down, leading to floaters), retinal tear, retinal detachment, ocular inflammation, eye injuries, or retinal blood vessel abnormalities such as diabetic retinopathy or retinal vein occlusion.
Initial funduscopic examination showed posterior vitreous detachment
