Could this have been caused by bouncing not jumping on a rebounder? I was told this happens as we get older and our eyes dry out. The mini trampoline is the only form of exercise I have and Dr. wouldn't commit to saying if he thought it could have been the cause. He did say be careful for awhile because I could have a retina detachment because of this. What is your opinion? Thanks.
I have the vitreous detachment and when I was diagnosed I asked the doctor if I can continue at the gym - he said, "Sure, do anything you want to do, it's not going to effect it" However, BEFORE I went I was told not to bounce around until they found out if the retina was torn. He never said if bouncing around could have caused it in the FIRST place, but I highly doubt it because he wouldn't have told me to do whatever I wanted to.
Since I have had vitreous detachment for so long my eye doctor I seen today. Said to come back in a month she want to check my eyes? Now I am worried about a retina detachment. Do you know anyone that had one and what happens?
Just to give you some odds, it may be 15% that the retina tears with a vitreous detachment, and out of that, only about 1% detaches, it's not a common thing, they just check it to make SURE because it is something that COULD happen. A tear would be there that they could zap with a lazer. A tear that is not fixed "could" detach the retina, so I wouldn't be too worried about it. The most common time for any problems resulting from the vitreous detachment is when it first happens, and the danger of a detachment is reduced thereafter.
