Laser Floater Treatment
Are you one of the many thousands of Canadians living with floaters in your field of vision? You may not even notice them until you’re outside on a sunny day, or perhaps looking at a white page on your phone or computer. Floaters are the small dark spots in your vision, which may give off the impression of strings, specks, or cobwebs drifting about when you move your eyes. The good news is, there is a solution.
What is a Floater?
Floaters can happen to anyone, but can become more common as we age. Over time, changes to your vitreous (the jelly-like substance inside the eye) cause it to act more like a liquid. Tiny fibers within the vitreous will often group together and take on many shapes and sizes causing tiny shadows in the retina which is what you see. These specks never seem to stay in one place and often seem to move as your move your eye and seem to “float” or “drift” to different locations.
People in Winnipeg and surrounding areas can now be treated by a new Laser Floater Treatment, only at Image Plus Laser Eye Centre.
What is the Treatment Process?
Performed with Reflex Technology from Ellex, Laser Floater Treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that can significantly improve a patient’s perception of their everyday visual functionality. This means you can see strong results from Laser Floater Treatment.
Using Reflex laser floater treatment technology, we’re able to visualize and assess the position of floaters relative to the lens, retina, or other eye structures to ensure safe treatment.
Plasma energy from the laser evaporates the collagen and hyaluronic acid comprising the floater, converting them into a gas which is absorbed into the eye. Due to these proteins being inert, patients don’t experience any pain or induced inflammation.
