Your visual acuity should remain the same and you Vision 20/20 Protocol Ebook Review will be able to see just as you could before the posterior vitreous detachment started. You may have some difficulties to begin with because of the floaters and flashing lights though these do not cause permanent sight loss. The only threats to vision are the small chance of a retinal tear leading to a retinal detachment or a retinal membrane formation causing distortions in your vision. 

It is important to stress that retinal tears and detachments are much rarer conditions and that very few people with posterior vitreous detachments go on to develop either of these problems. Sometimes the vitreous is so firmly attached to the surface of the retina that as the jelly collapses it pulls quite strongly on the retina. In a few people this may lead to the retina tearing which in turn could lead to a loss of vision because of a retinal detachment.

Warning signs of a retinal tear or detachment could be an increase in size and number of your floaters, a change or increase in the flashing lights you experience, or a blurring of vision. If you experience any of these symptoms you should seek medical advice within 24 hours. This is particularly important if you notice a dark "curtain" falling across your vision, as this may mean that the retina has already partially detached.
