What is a floater?

These are tiny or large, cloudy clumps of gel or cells that appear in an otherwise clear vitreous. They range from being a nuisance that can be ignored to floaters interfering in day to day activities.

In some cases, the floaters absorb by themselves in a few weeks or are small enough not to be a problem. However if they continue to cause a visual problem a laser can be used to get rid of them.

How are floaters treated?

Floaters are treated with laser which is meant to achieve ' functional improvement ' which means this procedure will allow patient to return to normal activities without hindrance of floaters. This laser involves application of laser light to evaporate the floater. This floater is converted to a gas and obliterated. The action of laser beam is only at point of focus. This gives excellent protection for other structures of eye.

It is totally painless, non invasive, OPD procedure with very low complication rate.
