Diseases which affect the vitreous
A large number of blood capillaries are found in the retina. These capillaries may get affected and bleed due to the following reasons:
- Diabetes mellitus
- Blood pressure
- Eale’s disease
- Severe trauma of the eye
- Retinal detachment
The blood enters the vitreous and makes the clear vitreous opaque. When the vitreous loses its transparent nature, vision is affected.
