YAG Laser Vitreolysis (Laser Floater Removal)

The nano-pulsed YAG laser by Ellex can be used to effectively remove significantly symptomatic, persisting vitreous opacities causing “floaters” in select patients.

A careful examination of the retina and vitreous through a dilated pupil is absolutely essential following the onset of “floaters” because our retina specialists can determine if what people are seeing is harmless, or the symptom of a more serious problem requiring treatment. With YAG laser vitreolysis, we can offer these patients a highly effective, pain-free outpatient-based treatment, which can provide much needed relief from their floaters and potentially obviate, or at the least delay, the need for invasive surgery.

If you suffer from eye floaters, please discuss with our retina specialists who will be able to determine if this treatment is appropriate for you.
