Posterior vitreous detachment

PVD is a very common eye condition that can cause floaters

Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is a very common eye condition. It's caused by natural changes to the vitreous gel which takes up the space inside the eye.

Although PVD causes some frustrating symptoms, it doesn’t cause pain or harm the eye and rarely leads to permanent loss of vision.
