Dr. Richard Scartozzi
Ophthalmology - Retinal Surgery
In brief: Depends
Ask your retina specialist.
Mild ones can dissolve away on their own. Others require vitrectomy to remove, especially if there is underlying pathology such as retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, etc. At the very least you should avoid strenuous physical activity and blood thinners (aspirin, nsaids, high dose vitamin e, fish oils, etc.).
