This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1761, "Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD)". Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is a common eye condition that can cause floaters (dots or spots) and flashes of light in your vision. PVD happens when a gel at the back of the eye starts to shrink with age and becomes liquid. This gel, called the vitreous humor, is normally attached to the ‘film’ of the eye, called the retina. When the vitreous humor shrinks and pulls away from the retina, it can detach itself (come apart from) from the retina in some places. This pamphlet explains what causes PVD, the symptoms of PVD, and how PVD is diagnosed and treated.

Abstract
Les injections de Botox peuvent être utilisées pour traiter votre blépharospasme (clignotement rapide des yeux) ou vos spasmes musculaires faciaux. Le Botox arrête les spasmes en bloquant les produits chimiques qui les causent. Le Botox ne guérit pas. Il offre plutôt un soulagement temporaire des symptômes. Le présent dépliant explique comment se préparer aux injections, traitements et effets secondaires.
