Author Affiliations


Purpose: to identify the criteria and the probability of progression of vitreofoveolar traction syndrome. Materials and methods: 47 patients (including 36 women and 11 men) have been examined. Patients underwent a comprehensive ophthalmic examination in logical terms of 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after the treatment. Results and discussion: Dynamic observation revealed that spontaneous posterior vitreous detachment occurred in 8.5 % of cases. The statistically significant changes have not been revealed in 57.5 % of cases. That testifies to the stable course of the process. The statistically significant parameters of disease progression have been revealed in 34 % of cases.
