What is vitreous degeneration?

In brief: Changes with age

As we age, the vitreous (the gel inside the eye) breaks down and transitions from a more solid state to a more liquid state.
As this happens, patients often begin to see an increasing number of floaters in the vision. Any flashes of light warrant a consultation with an eye doctor.
