What is the humor or vitreous body?

The humor or vitreous body is an avascular gelatinous structure, formed by water (98%) and cells, found in the posterior segment, between the lens and the retina. It is a transparent and homogeneous structure at birth. As we age the vitreous humor undergoes structural changes and contracts, and may appear small flying flies that cause spots in the visual field. They consist of small particles of condensed vitreous, mobile and with different indices of refraction. They may have the form of dots, lines or fragments in spider webs, which fluctuate and interfere objectively with our vision.

What to do?

At the time of its appearance, it is essential to perform a complete ophthalmologic examination with fundoscopy, to evaluate the entire retina.
