Stop smoking: For one as I can see on your profile because the combination of smoking and diabetes is lethal to your body including arteries. I am sure you do not want to lose your limbs as this is unfortunate reality for many patients who smoke. In addition, avoiding all processed foods and eating whole foods will also strengthen your lining of your arteries as currently you have a lot of inflammation. Best! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

6, 4 n 2mnths back I hd done oct optomap for seeing sparking stars, every time doc said retina is normal, does he mean no pvd? He never mention pvd at all
Ret tear ruled out by my doc, see sparkling stars 24/7, hv floaters too, he said pvd full process not yet started but there is vitreous detachment, means?
PVD is not a tear: A PVD or posterior vitreous detachment is a natural consequence of aging. When it occurs in someone suddenly and there are new floaters or flashes of light, we recommend a dilated exam of the retina. It is not because the floaters or flashes are dangerous, but because the PVD may also occur with retinal tears which can lead to retinal detachment, but it is possible to have PVD and no tear. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does borderline Peripheral vascular disease on ankle brachial index test mean? It was 0.93. I had Normal Calcium Score/CTA.
PVD, PAD: I would not call an ABI of. 93 borderline PVD (peripheral vascular disease). It is normal. If you divide the arm blood pressure by the ankle pressure the number should be 1.0. Meaning the arm and ankle should have the same blood pressure. ABI's of. 5 suggest occlusive disease or a blockage somewhere in the leg or calf. Again, an ABI of 0.93 is normal ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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

No Clear Association: Pvd does not necessarily cause cloudy vision. The eye conditions which cause cause cloudy vision are cataracts and glaucoma. Pvd may cause loss of visual field through embolization and loss of blood flow to the retina (eye). Sometimes plaque from the carotid arteries will be the source and the can be seen in the back of the eye on an eye exam (holenhorst plaques). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: The vitreous jelly tends to break down with time, and can contract and pull away causing a pvd, more common in higher myopes at an early age. Blindness could happen if a retinal tear leading to a retinal detachment occurred at the same time as the pvd, but if nonhemorrhagic PVD only, then usually resolves without sequelae. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm so sad because I just got diagnosed with pvd and I'm only 28. Is this going to eventually make me blind?
Don't worry!: Pvd or posterior vitreous detachment is a common condition which causes floaters. It can only make you blind if it leads to a tear in your retina. This is uncommon but you should have a dilated retinal exam by an ophthalmologist or retinal specialist to make sure everything is ok. Good luck and have a nice day! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
