Thanks for your Question
The incidence of Vitreous syneresis increases after cataract surgery most likely because patients weren't aware about the presence of it. The presence of cataract causes blurred vision and reduces contrast sensitivity of the images.
After cataract surgery, patients will have high visual acuity and high contrast sensitivity and at this time they will start to notice the presence of eye floaters.
Another cause of Eye Floaters or vitreous syneresis after cataract surgery is rupture of the posterior capsule of the lens with anterior vitrectomy. It is a common complication that occurs during cataract surgery.
Eye floaters is a benign condition. It is advisable to visit your eye doctor if you notice it for the first time and also if it increases in number and intensity or associated with other symptoms such as blurred vision or flushes of lights.
Rheumatoid arthritis associated with dry eyes and it requires excessive lubrication to reduce the symptoms of dry eyes. Sometimes puntal plugs and Restasis can help to reduce its severity.
