Laser Floater Treatment - an effective solution
Laser Floater Treatment (posterior membranectomy) is a minimally invasive procedure that offers the potential to improve a patient's visual functionality by alleviating their perception of eye floaters. The approach provides a treatment alternative for patients whose symptoms and risk profile does not justify vitrectomy. Laser Floater Treatment can also delay or obviate the need for invasive surgery.
Ellex pioneered a laser design specifically for the treatment of floaters. Our Reflex Technology™ includes True Coaxial Illumination™, on- and off-axis modes, a precise aiming beam and a superior energy beam profile — all within a unique slit lamp illumination tower design that converges and focuses the physician’s sight line, target illumination and treatment beam into one optical path.
Our Reflex Technology™ makes focusing highly accurate and equips physicians with a safe and highly effective laser-based option to reduce or eliminate visual disturbance caused by symptomatic floaters.
The effectiveness of Laser Floater Treatment has been transformed through the development of technologies including Ellex's TCI™ True Coaxial Illumination™. Ophthalmologists can now treat a patient’s symptomatic floaters with greater spatial context than ever before. This translates to safer, more effective treatment outcomes.
