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.
