In brief: Nothing needed

Vitreous detachment is a normal aging process of the gel that fills the back of the eye.
Usually it detaches silently but sometimes it happens in a few locations with light flashes, floaters and visual changes. Since these symptoms are the same as retinal detachment these symptoms should always be evaluated by an ophthalmologist when they occur.
