The word "Synchysis" is not in my dictionary. What does it mean? In any case:

Synchysis: there is associated vitreous liquefaction. Syneresis: there is collapse of the vitreous due to collection of synchytic fluid between the posterior hyaloid membrane and the internal limiting membrane of the retina.

Is extremely awkward and should be rewritten. Senor Cuete (talk) 19:45, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

The word"synchytic" is not in the dictionary either. The above text should be removed because it's described in the article, in English. Senor Cuete (talk) 19:58, 28 January 2015 (UTC)


"Vitreous" is an adjective, not a noun, so the use of this word as a noun is wrong. Shouldn't this be something like vitreous humor"? Senor Cuete (talk) 19:48, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

This a edit you may want to add in. Posterior Vitreous Detachment can happen from just the age of 20. I got mine at 21 from stress on the eye's from sleeping with my face, face down on the bed with my arm pushing hard onto my eye's all night that i wake up with flashing colors and PVD can all so happen from eye injury. -- (talk) 2015-12-04T23:13:36
