What is the treatment for floaters
Floaters are usually harmless and may become less noticeable over time. However, in some patients, they can persist and affect the quality of vision, making it difficult to perform daily tasks. In these cases, a vitrectomy operation can be performed to remove the vitreous along with the floaters. Generally, we do not recommend any form of treatment for floaters that do not cause significant visual problems in the majority of patients.
Vitrectomy Surgery for floaters - Sutureless
The removal of the vitreous jelly and floaters from inside the eye is called vitrectomy, which is performed through three keyholes in the eye without the need for sutures. In some cases, a special gas bubble may be left inside the eye, which dissolves on its own after a few weeks. If gas is used, patients are instructed to position their head in a certain way for a period of up to 7 days and avoid flying or going to high altitudes until the gas bubble disappears.
