Desprendimiento de vítreo
¿Qué es el desprendimiento de vítreo?
Vitreous detachment is a disorder which is caused by the deterioration of the gelatinous consistency of the fluid that fills the inside of the eyeball.
When the vitreous humour becomes more liquid than normal and loses its firmness, it ends up “collapsing”. As a result, the hyaloid membrane that surrounds it separates from the layer it is attached to, the retina, which may cause a break in this tissue that lines the inside of the eye.
