The vitreous body is a whitish gelatinous material in the eye, located specifically in the range of the lens and the retina before it. Vitreous detachment is a retinal detachment. This may occur naturally as you age or even after a violent shock or retinal inflammation. The detachment may not cause any symptoms, but in some cases, vision may be affected by small moving spots (floaters), a loss in the field of vision, and progression to blindness.
