Vitreous is a gel-like component in the eye that fills the posterior part of the globe giving it the typical round shape. In vitreous degeneration the normally clear and gel-like vitreous becomes watery and there might even be small amounts of the vitreous leaking to the anterior chamber. In addition, some small snowflake-like particles might be seen floating in the vitreous.
