WHAT IS VITREOUS BODY DESTRUCTION?
A vitreous body starts being destructed when its original structure is changing – separate fibers lose transparency and become thicker. They are seen as floaters, threads, and other floating elements.
A number of various factors can cause the vitreous body destruction. They are the following: age dependent changes after 40 – 50 years of age and presence of vascular disorders, endocrinal and metabolic defects, cervical osteochondrosis, eye, head or nose damages. Moreover, a high level of toxic or radiation exposure, previous parasitic and infectious intoxications can be the destruction cause.
An ophthalmologist’s thorough examination allows identifying the vitreous body physiologic or pathologic opacity and prescribing correct treatment.
