    Well, generally speaking, it is dangerous to have vitreous detachment. and there are many factors which can lead to it. for example, stress can lead to vitreous detachment. according to some researches, as we age, the vitreous will become increasingly liquid causing a strain on the connective tissue and fibers. in that way, vitreous detachment may occur. also, the stress to the eyes such as excessive computer use can cause it. to treat it, you may need surgery, so you should go and see the eye doctor. he can give the eye exam, and then give some advices.

    Yes, I have heard of vitreous detachment. It is a condition of the vitreous humor separating from the retina in the eye. It is a natural change that occurs in the eye because as we get older, the vitreous gel which consists mainly of water and collagen and has a stiff, jelly-like consistency changes its shape and begins to move. When it occurs, there is a characteristic pattern of symptoms such as flash of light, a sudden dramatic increase in the number of floaters and a ring of floaters or hairs to the temporal side of the central vision. There is no need to receive a therapy in the case because it will heal on its own.
