I went to my optician today and had an eye exam, and was told I have ‘tight vitreomacular adhesion’. I have it in my right eye.
The optician had another optician to come and look at my eye and both were quite fascinated by it and said it was quite rare. Obviously I had no clue what they were talking about. She said that something was ‘tight’.
I was told that as soon as I get ‘floaters’ to come straight in for an eye exam.
Is this related to EDS?
No, that is not related to EDS. It is not uncommon, but can cause retinal tears (hence their caution about symptoms). 🙂
Do you have any idea what causes it or what it’s related to?
Could it be caused by chronic dry eye? Or is it just ‘one of those things?’
The optician didn’t explain it to me at all, just gave me a name and told me to come in ASAP if I get floaters.
Thanks for the reply.
