How dangerous is latis degeneration?

Potenetially. Lattice degeneration is like a perforation in a peice of paper. If the back sticky layer of the vireous gel tugs on the retina in an area of lattice degeneration, the retina is more likely to tear and lead to retinal detachment. If you have acute onset of floaters, flashes at night or a curtain coming over your vision u need to be seen immediately.
