Vitreous Hemorrhage Herbal Treatment
Collaborative care: For this, you really need the care of a good ophthalmologist to start with. A homeopathic physician would be able to also assess your symptoms from his/her perspective and find the homeopathic medicine that might work well for you in conjunction with conventional treatment. Although there are multiple medicines possible, homeopathic gelsemium is one known to help in retinal detachment. ...Read more
No: New or worse floaters and/or flashing lights in your vision can be a pvd; however, there may also be a retinal tear or retinal detachment. So one must have an urgent dilated retinal exam to rule out the more serious complications. Vitrectomy can be done to remove eye floaters from a pvd, but this is usually too invasive a procedure for this condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Risk % of rd for someone with multiple lattice undergoing symptomatic posterior vitreous detachment? Prophylactic laser treatment recommended?
Careful: You are at increased risk for retinal detachment. I recommend being cautious with surgery for floaters. Wait at least one year before proceeding with surgery. If they still persist and are unbearable then consider surgery. Symptoms usually resolve or improve with time in 99% of the people. Consult with a retina specialist to determine if prophylactic laser is indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Opth diagnosis of few vitreous floaters ou & no posterior vitreous detach noted ou. What is the difference between floaters and pvd? Same prognosis?
Floaters and pvd: Floaters are "things" in the vitreous cavity that you can see floating in your vision. The "things" can be blood, inflammatory cells, parasites, or most commonly, clumps of the normal vitreous material. A posterior vitreous detachment is when the back of the vitreous becomes separated from the retina. A PVD is usually accompanied by floaters. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
Please explain what are some symptoms of vitreous haemorrhage and retina detachment after retrobulbar injection?
Loss of vision: If there is inadvertent puncture of the eye during injection. Symptoms would be blurry vision, haze, curtain or shadow. This is a serious complication that can lead to loss of sight. It typically happens in myopic eyes which are longer and with a sharp rather than blunted tip needle. It often requires surgical repair and visual prognosis depends on what areas are damaged. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What r the symptoms early stage signs of retinal detachment and retinal tears?Eye floaters natural solution any food diet plan to get rid of it?Thnx
Floaters, flashes: Retinal detachment releases blood elements into the visual axis -you will see many floaters - and jiggles the retinal -this stimulus creates light flashing or light streaks - and as it progresses you may see greying out or blockage of the vision. When these occur suddenly especially after trauma, see an ophthalmologist right away. This is a mechanical event -no natural remedies exist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In retinal detachment surgery, how far are we from finding a pharmacological cure for / preventative agent against proliferative vitreoretinopathy?
Decades if ever. Why: Because humans=Hi-Tech, medical system=Low-Tech & issues=complex. Study: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proliferative_vitreoretinopathy & http://goo.gl/Blh6rW & http://goo.gl/44sPmg for perspective. The pharma industry (crucial to many easy to use advances) looks for single molecules which interact with our fantastic complexity for more benefit than harm, though later always easier & more common. ...Read more

It depends: Vitreous detachment and retinal detachment are two very different entities. A vitreous detachment is an age-related breakdown of the jelly-like gel in the back of the eye. This is a normal process that can lead to floaters. It can also lead to a retinal tear and detachment. A retinal detachment is more ominous and can lead to vison loss. Best advice is to seek care from a retina specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why do post-cataract surgery retinal detachments occur? Is there some retinal pulling involved from posterior vitreous detachment (pvd)?
Destabilization: The natural lens and its supports stabilize the front of the eye and vitreous. Removal of the thick natural lens and substitution with a thin artificial lens, increases the chance for the vitreous to move in ways that can destabilize the attachments of the vitreous over the retina. If there are weak places, this can increase the chance of detachment, even in the best of cataract surgeries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
