*  Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD)
A posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is a common age-related condition in the eye. When we are young, the vitreous gel in the middle of the eye is firmly attached to the retina. As we age, the vitreous gel liquifies, and as it liquifies, it also contracts and pulls away from the retina. When the vitreous has detached from the retina, a posterior vitreous detachment is said to have occurred. Once the vitreous has pulled away, it poses no threat to the retina. However, while the vitreous detachment is occurring, it has potential to "tug too hard" on the retina and cause a retinal tear. Around 15% of the time, a PVD will cause a retinal tear. Therefore, patients having an acute PVD should undergo a dilated retinal exam.. When a PVD begins, a patient typically notices a large "cobweb" or "string-like" or "blob" floater in their vision. The patient may also complain of light flashes or a curtain-like shade over their vision. Patients experiencing these symptoms should contact their eye provider, and ...

*  IP] Vitrectomy Report
I arrived at the Arizona Ophthalmic Outpatient Surgery about 12:45, and I was home by 3:00. They had told me I would be getting a general anesthetic, but the nurse who prepared me for the surgery informed me that I would be getting a local. That was fine with me. They put lots of different drops into the eye, and the anesthesiologist administered an "eye block", which I was told would knock me out for a minute or two, but if I went out at all, I'd be surprised to hear it. I'm going to do a little research to try and find out what the "eye block" actually is. It was 1:50 when they rolled me into surgery. They placed a large drape over my head/face, with a hole for the left eye where the surgeon would be working. I never felt anything, but I was aware of changes in the visual field as the surgeon did his work. I was out of surgery about 2:30, with a bandage over my left eye. It stays in place until sometime tomorrow morning, when the visiting nurse from the surgeon's staff comes to my home. My BG ...
