Does Exercise Increase The Risk Of A Retinal Tear After Vitreous Tear
Decrease: If the vitreous is totally detached from the retinal surface, then there will be no more tugging on retinal thin points which would be a source of possible retinal tear. It is the non-detached vitreous spots with stronger adhesion that increase the risk of a retinal tear. ...Read more
Exercise Or Physical Activity (Definition)
Exercise is a physical activity that is completed to maintain or improve health. Benefits of exercise include weight maintenance, improving mood, increasing energy, preventing or controlling chronic diseases, promoting better sleeping, and improving sex life and libido. ...Read more
Does doing a laser retinopexy around areas of lattice degeneration reduce the risk of tractional tears ensuing from posterior vitreous detachment?
Yes,it should reduce: Yes, the decision for retinopexy is best made by retina subspecialist who can assess whether the degree of lattice ; or the presence of high risk thinning would warrant the risks. Retinopexy creates a tighter bonding so that in event of PVD there is lower likelihood of retinal tears. ...Read more
Does casual weighlifting during exercise cause floater increase? No history of retinal tear or increase in floaters.
What are the chances of pvd leading to a retinal tear or detachment in young high myopia(30-40)age group?Can flashes of eyes persist 4ever after pvd?
Higher: The risk is probably 10 x greater than a patient without these characteristics. Still probably about 1/1000 unless you have a family history of retinal tear and detachment. ...Read more
If prior retinal tear, risk at 60 of developing a retinal detachment or a posterior vitreous detachment?
See a retina special: You do have a somewhat increased risk of developing a retinal detachment if you've had a retinal tear (even if it was treated), though you should speak to your retina specialist to gauge your true risk based on your exam. Everyone develops posterior vitreous detachments as we age - that is regardless of having had a tear or not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a posterior vitreous detachment. Will the floaters/blurriness improve with time? What is the likelihood of it becoming a retinal detachment?
vitreous detachment: The fluid that fills the back of the eye ages like everything else. When it detaches, the area that held onto the optic nerve moves in front of the retina casting a shadow that you see as a floater. It has no way of leaving the eye but will gradually move to a less annoying position and you will learn to ignore it, mostly. The risk of retinal tear is 1 in 50; detachment is about 1 in 1000. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
If more (enough) vitreous degeneration occurs before pvd, does the vitreous come off easier than usual with lesser risk of retinal tear?
Not really: The amount of vitreous liquification does not correlate with the risk of retinal tears. The vitreous liquified in or near the center and the collapses on itself and peels off the retinal surface. The tears occur if there is a spot where it is more stuck to the retina. Think perking tape off of paper, the paper may tear where outbid "too" stuck fown during the peeling. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can anterior vitreous detachment occur before pvd? Does it reduce the retinal risks assoc with cataract surgery? Symptoms other than floaters?
Vitreous detachment: May occur at the level of the anterior retina adjacent to an area called the ora serrata. The vitreous may delaminate from the retina at any location, meaning either posterior or anterior at anytime either from trauma or idiopathic. If the vitreous is already detached from the retina, then the risks of a retinal detachment is theoretically reduced. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does vitreous degeneration always lead to a posterior vitreous detachment (pvd) or pvd may not happen altogether in presence of vitreous degeneration?
Wouldnt pars plana vitrectomy reduce the risk of retinal tears or detachments due to vitreoretinal traction for someone with lattice and vitr degen?
have heard that all retinal tear does not lead to detachment,if yes,what is the max & min time a tear takes to lead to detachment?
Does doing a b/l barrage around the areas of lattice degeneration greatly reduce the risk of retinal detachment? Are there any risk in this procedure?
It depends: Laser barrage can protect you from a retinal detachment from lattice if there are high risk findings associated like retinal tears along the edge of the lattice, history of retinal detachment in the opposite eye, marked traction/elevation along the lattice, etc. Many have no problems at all from lattice and do not require treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If posterior vitreous detachment happen in yung high myopic like me without retinal tear, is der a chance of future retinal tear due 2 cataract/glucoma?
Higher: The risk is probably 10 x greater than a patient without these characteristics. Risk ia about 1/1000 unless you have a family history. Having glaucoma and a cataract do not increase this risk. Having cataract surgery does increase the risk of retinal tears. You should talk your eye md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does lattice with very small holes have a greater risk of developing into a retinal tear (due to traction) than lattice without holes or unrelated?
Minor difference: Lattice develops as a means for the young retina to stabilize deeper attachments to prevent detachment. This along with the gelatinous nature of the vitreous is very protective. The holes probably reflect slightlly thinner retina and a very slightly increased risk. Detachment is unlikely until past age 40 when the vitreous naturally liquefies and is less protective. ...Read more
Growth of cells: During a posterior vitreous detachment, the vitreous in the middle of the eye peels off the retina that lines the inside of the eye wall. This change happens in almost everyone. Sometimes remnant cells left after the separation grow into a sheet or 'epiretinal membrane' on the surface of the retina. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Problem in vision of right eye after diagnosis of pvd/ is that due to floaters or retinal tear now?
Does vitreous degeneration occur secondary to lattice degeneration of retina or do they occur independently, but together pose a risk of a future rd?
Separate: Lattice degeneration is an intra-retinal problem in which the retina lays down pigment to protect itself from stress at that point.. Vitreous degeneration is an older folks problem during which the gel vitreous over many years, turns into a dense syrupy liquid. Together they may increase slightly the risk of rd. ...Read more
