You have stumped me on this one. Before you wrote the discussion I had never heard of it. What symptoms do you have that makes you go to the doctor with it. I'm glad that you were able to have surgery to fix it. Hope you are OK now.

Floater(specks, dots, spots, cobwebs or threads) that move in the field of vision.
Light flashes(flashes of light to light streaks seen in the dark, usually with eye movement)
Vitreous floaters are cells, particles, or condensatios of vitreous jelly. Although they appear to be in the front of the eye, they are actually floating in the vitreous jelly inside the eye and are seen as cast shadows on the retina…Debe

I can surely say I learned something new today. Thanks for your reply. I hope that you will not have any lasting damage from it. It is great to have doctors that can catch these things and correct them before they get worse.

Yes I wear glasses and contacts too. This isn't the lasix surgery where your eye are cured to see. This is laser surgery to fix the hemorrage in my eyes…Debe

I have had this in both eyes at different times. My Eye MD gave me a few weeks to see if it would go away. But after it didn't I ended up going and having a vitrectomy.
