Erase the

Floaters

Stop “floaters” thanks to the non-invasive technique of vitreolysis.

The floaters, sometimes referred to as “flying flies”, are small clumps of collagen that break away from the gel-like vitreous inside your eye. These moving bodies cause shadows on the retina that the patient sees “floating” throughout the field of vision. Sometimes floaters are accompanied by flashes of light: in this case it is necessary to have an immediate eye examination to rule out the presence of retinal rupture or detachment. Although for most patients floaters become less noticable over time, for some individuals they may persist and become bothersome.

There is no pharmacological treatment to prevent floaters, but in some cases- thanks to laser- it is possible to treat this condition with the non-invasive technique of vitreolysis, reserving a more-invasive surgical vitrectomy to only the most difficult cases.

A need, a desire, a dream…

You know the situation well, but you didn’t know the word: Myodesopsia. A scientific name that does not describe the feeling you have when you look at a painting hanging on a huge white wall, the cinema screen showing a beautiful sunrise, the computer monitor you’ve been staring at for far too many hours. You never thought those little floaters that disturb your vision could be eliminated. Now you know what can be done. What are you waiting for?

Technology and Solutions

With fast, effective, and painless laser treatment it is possible to address the imperfections of the vitreous to eliminate the symptoms. In cases where the vitreous is decidedly opaque, it can be removed with a traditional type of surgery

Laser Vitreolysis

Also known as laser treatment for myodesopsia, vitreolysis is a painless and non- invasive procedure performed in 2-3 sessions that effectively eliminates the disturbance of “flying flies”.

Nd: YAG laser is used in the office setting, with no recovery time. A few anesthetic drops for a simple procedure and… goodbye flies!

How much does it cost?

The cost of laser vitreolysis is comparable to that of a nice pair of men’s shoes (women’s shoes sometimes have exaggerated price tags!). For some a whim, for others a necessity…

Vitrectomy

Vitrectomy is a delicate micro-surgical intervention that consists of completely removing the vitreous body and replacing it with a similar substance. It is carried out as the final treatment option for floaters, when the vitreous body has become opaque. The surgery is performed in a sterile environment with local anesthetic, and recovery takes place over 2-3 days.

How much does it cost?

The cost to definitively rid floaters and other vitreous disorders is comparable to the purchase of 16,000 cigarettes, which at the rate of 10-20 per day would be consumed in 2-4 years. Wouldn’t you sacrifice smoking to rid yourself of this annoying problem? We think so.
