Abstract

Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD), retinal breaks, and lattice degeneration are common problems in ophthalmic clinical practice, which not only cause disturbance to patients’ life-quality, but also increase the risk of retinal detachment and vitreoretinal traction.In September 2019, the American Academy of Ophthalmology published Posterior Vitreous Detachment, Retinal Breaks, and Lattice Degeneration Preferred Practice Pattern (PPP). Based on clinical evidence, this PPP provides authoritative guidance for the definition, epidemiological background, diagnosis and treatment of these diseases.This PPP also gives definite solution for treatment and follow-up of different sub-types.This article provides introduction and interpretation of this PPP.

Key words:

Posterior vitreous detachment; Retinal breaks; Lattice degeneration; Retinal detachment; American Academy of Ophthalmology; Guidelines interpretation
