Time allowed out of country with professional visa question

I have seen that before 2 years of residency, a permanent visa (9-V) holder can be out of the country for 180 days. To find out if I am below this 2-years of residency, do I look at the "Valido a partir del" date on my visa in my passport? (which says 12/5/2016)

Also is this 180 days correct? Thank you to anybody that can help.

Malecon, Puerto Lopez.
