lt;p>HelloCustomer</p><p> </p><p>The answer is yes and no. Usually a central blurring of vision that is stationary is not caused by a posterior vitreous detachment. There could be hemorrhage or macular degeneration or inflammation (central serous chorioretinopathy) or edema (cystoid macular edema). This really needs to be checked out ASAP.</p><p> </p><p>A posterior vitreous detachment can indirectly cause this symptom by tugging on the central part of the retina and causing what is called a macular hole.</p><p> </p><p>Either way, you need to see an ophthalmologist ASAP.</p><p> </p><p>Hope this helps and thank you.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
