Core Tip Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) tends to be a benign condition related to aging. Acute PVD can cause the onset of symptoms like flashes, visual disturbances and floaters. Current literature has provided new explanations behind the mechanisms behind normal and abnormal PVD. Incidence, prevalence and risk factors are important in assessing patients. New diagnostic tools like optical coherence tomography have assisted in providing objective evaluations of patients. Treatment based on vitrectomy, laser and pharmacological vitreolysis are available, however, can be invasive and worsen symptoms and thus seldom considered. Patient must be properly educated to seek an ophthalmologic examination with dilated fundus evaluation upon the onset of important signs and symptoms, especially those with risk factors, because early diagnosis and treatment can prevent irreversible vision loss.
