I have posterior vitreous detachment in my one eye. I have also had many tests to make sure the retina is not torn, etc. My doctor has been very thorough. However, I have sun sensitivity in the eye with the pvd which I am told is " normal, " sometimes. Can someone give me some insight into this? Should I be concerned, more careful to wear sunglasses, and so forth. Thank you, Karin
The vitreous detachment can cause unwanted visual distortions in the eye. In my experience, I can not recall a patient with this complaint after a PVD. Sometimes patient pay more attention to an eye after a problem. You may have had some sun sensitivity that did not bother you, but now with the additional floaters you may be more sensitive.
One more concern, or question: the doctor mentioned when he did a scan that my eye with the pvd had some inflammation, showing up on the scan in an orange color. Is this normal for having a pvd and floaters? Could it have anything to do with my sun sensitivity? Thank you, Karin
