The vitreous is the fluid that makes up the majority of the inside of your eye. Unfortunately, as you age, your vitreous may decrease in volume, pulling on your retina at the same time. This is known as vitreous detachment and can result in a possible retinal tear, leading to a loss of vision and even blindness.
That's why it's so important to visit your FYidoctors optometrist for a regular eye exam (particularly if you're over the age of 60). We can examine the fluid in your eye and determine whether or not you're at risk of developing this serious condition.
