Why did my vision worsen after pvd?

Need more info: In what way is your vision worse? Is it correctable with glasses or change in glasses? Are things blurry all the time or episodic? Do you see a large shadow? Do you see a lot of floaters? Pvd can cause bleeding in the eye, retinal tears or detachments which can all affect your vision. Theoretically your anatomy can mildly change and affect your vision refractively... Your eyemd can better answer. ...Read more

How long after pvd will vision be cloudy?

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 more

Blurred vision after pvd?

Blurred vision after pvd?

Not common: A posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is when the vitreous gel pulls away from the retina. The posterior aspect of the vitreous can be seen as a floater, often appearing like a spider web in the vision. In theory, if this floater obstructs the macula, or central retina, it could blur the vision. However, this is usually transient. If blurry vision is constant, get evaluated for retinal detachment. ...Read more

I had pvd months ago and still have hazy vision - has anyone had this problem?

Common problem: The first step is to be evaluated by an eye doctor to make sure you don't have any retinal problems that may have resulted in bleeding. Assuming that it is a pvd, you may have a floater in the center of your vision. It's annoying and can take 6 months or more to move out of the way, but there isn't much you can do about it. Fortunately, it's not dangerous. ...Read more

Depends: Given your ocular history, i would see your ophthalmologist. I'm not sure why you had laser, because vitreous hemorrhage itself is not an indication. The underlying cause could have been a retinal tear, perhaps. I've seen patients with the same symptom you're describing who are found to have a localized retinal detachment. Please see your doctor. Don't wait! ...Read more

Degenerative floater: Degenerative floaters are caused by vitreous changes with age/time, which can start at a young age, esp. if the eye is nearsighted. If there are sudden new floaters noticed under less light intensive circumstances, they might signal a retinal tear, and an eye exam is highly recommended -but in this case was already normal. ...Read more
