Yes, it is perfectly safe for you to travel with a PVD, but when you reach home it is recommended that you be examined by a qualified ophthalmic surgeon, because occasionally your symptoms can be associated with a small tear in the retina, which can lead to a retinal detachment. Does that make sense?
yes. if there is no tear, can the condition be treated or do i have to live with it
Many of us have PVDs. Personally, I have had one for many years. Generally, we become adapted to its presence, and nothing needs to be done. However, if it is a significant burden, the vitreo-retinal specialists have a safe surgical technique that can be used to remove the problem. Is there anything else I can answer for you this morning?
last question-- if there is a tear. what procedure can be done to rectify the condition?
Generally, a small retinal tear can be lasered to close it, painlessly, right in the ophthalmologists office. If this answers your questions to your satisfaction, please be kind enough to sign out by clicking the smiling happy face to indicate that you are satisfied with my help to you.
