Does symptomatic (floaters) lattice degeneration require prophylactic laser treatment? Does it minimise the risk of potential future tractional tears?
Depends: Lattice degeneration is thinning of peripheral retina from vitreous "pulling" on retina with whitening of blood vessels- forms a patch of "lattice" white blood vessels and thinned retina. Lattice can be associated with round retinal holes from the thinning and retinal tears at the edge-this can result in retinal detachment. Laser is used to treat symptomatic tears or risk of retinal detachment. ...Read more

Retinal Detachemnt: Varies, depending on what the cause, how long it has been present, age, amount of retina detachment, whether or not the macula is detached or not detached (macula off or on retinal detachment).

Consult with a retina specialist to determine if prophylactic laser is indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Perhaps never: Lattice degeneration lesions are considered by some to have increased risk of retinal tear and detachment. However, it is not clearly established that such an association exists. Many practitioners treat lattice degeneration only if the fellow eye has had a retinal tear or detachment. There is no 'intrinsic expectation' that an eye with lattice would have a retinal detachment. ...Read more
None needed: The vitreous, a gel that fills the space between the lens and retina in the back of the eye, can lift off its moorings as a natural process of aging.
