Improve patient life quality
While floaters can be overlooked as a common symptom of vitreous deterioration, the adverse effect that they can have on a patient’s quality of life is sometimes significant enough to warrant treatment. A study of over 300 outpatients reported that floaters had the same negative impact on quality of life as age-related macular degeneration*.
Laser Floater Treatment can significantly improve a patient's perception of their everyday visual functionality and provide them with much-needed relief from eye floaters. The technique fills the treatment gap for patients whose symptoms and risk profile does not warrant treatment with vitrectomy. Laser floater treatment can also delay or obviate the need for surgery.
