Can axial shortening help with myopia-induced PVD?

I’ve been wondering, theoretically speaking, if someone with myopia already has posterior vitreous detachment (PVD), will reshaping their eyeballs back to normal-sized ones help reduce the PVD by reattaching some of the vitreous back onto the retina? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Let you measure your axial length, check your retina, reduce your myopia significantly, and then reassess your retina and remeasure your axial length.

I guess it can. However, you have to do it asap.
