From this study (5 years ago):
Trying to figure out if my symptoms are related to medications I am taking or due to chronic fatigue syndrome which I have been diagnosed with and maybe fibromyalgia or lumbar stenosis or MS.

Well, it seems vitreous detachment is age related anyway. In general, in males and females in their fifties, vitreous detachment will first begin. To my knowledge, the fluid becomes thickened and pulls away from the retina. Maybe the money spent on this research would have better been put to use in cancer or diabetes research.

i dont think age is related to eye floaters or retina detachment, i seen very young people suffering from eye floaters,
sometimes i wonder if all these just counter act eachother.. if my other health problems are induced due to all the meds.
