Vitreous pathology

Vitreous diseases are usually secondary. Most often, they develop against the background of other concomitant diseases:

  • inflammation of the retina or choroid;
  • with eye injuries;
  • in the presence of parasites in the eye;
  • a high degree of myopia;
  • hypertensive or diabetic retinopathy.

Symptoms and factors provoking the development of the disease directly depend on the nature of the disease.

  • If the destruction is of a filamentous nature, subtle filaments of a light color appear in the vitreous. This type of disease is most common in people suffering from atherosclerosis.
  • In the case of granular destruction, small brown particles resembling grains are formed in the vitreous. This type of disease develops as a result of retinal detachment, inflammation in the choroid, and intraocular tumor.
  • Vitreous destruction with crystalline formations of Sinchisis scintillans develop as a result of endocrine diseases - diabetes mellitus, metabolic disorders.
  • Vitreous hemorrhages usually occur in diabetes mellitus, hypertension, atherosclerosis and other diseases. Such a pathology of the vitreous body often leads to tractional retinal detachment.

Of the common symptoms of vitreous diseases, there are:

  • visual impairment;
  • opacities in the vitreous.


By themselves, diseases of the vitreous body are not the most serious diseases of the organs of vision. However, they can provoke very serious consequences. To prescribe an effective treatment, a specialist must understand what kind of disease the disease is in your case. Therefore, it is so important to undergo diagnostic measures.

At the K + 31 Clinic Medical Center, doctors diagnose in one day and prescribe you effective treatment on the same day. The treatment regimen is developed by our specialists individually for each patient.

We do:

  • visometry
  • biomicroscopy;
  • ophthalmoscopy;
  • ultrasound examinations.

Vitreous Disease Treatment

First of all, the treatment of such diseases should begin with the elimination of the root cause. If it is impossible to completely eliminate the disease that caused the violation in the vitreous body (for example, diabetes mellitus), its course must be controlled. If the underlying disease progresses, the vision situation will worsen.
