The vitreous is a transparent gel that fills the posterior segment of the eye. With aging, the vitreous undergoes progressive liquefaction and thus more readily sloshes during eye motion . In addition to its relevance to the problem of vitreous detachment , increased motion of the vitreous could have a profound effect on transport of drugs used to treat posterior segment eye diseases.
