Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD) is more common in individuals who have had cataract surgery. ugg australia Buy FF14 items While there may not be an obvious “cause and effect” relationship but there are a number of possible factors may contribute to this. basket adidas zx flux Asics 2017 Cataract Surgeon Dr. asics soldes Da-Thuy explained why cataract surgery patients often experience Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD) after a cataract operation.

  • The vitreous changes that lead to vitreous liquefication and instability and ultimately PVD are age-related, as are cataracts and the need for cataract surgery.
  • Removal of a cataract can allow mechanical space shifts in the vitreous gel and perhaps increase the odds of PVD.
  • Biochemical changes actually occur following cataract surgery and these appear to increase the likelihood of PVD, particularly if the posterior lens capsule is opened.
  • Unusual complications of cataract surgery can disrupt the integrity of the vitreous gel and increase the odds of PVD.
