Posterior Vitreous Detachment
A posterior vitreous detachment is a condition in which the vitreous gel shrinks and pulls away from the retina. The pulling can produce sensations of flashing lights. Sometimes the contracting gel pulls retinal tissue fragments out. These fragments are stuck to connective tissue fibers in the vitreous and they move with motions of the eye (called floaters).
