LASER EYE FLOATER REMOVAL (YAG VITREOLYSIS)


What are eye floaters?

When we age, protein fibers (collagen) within the gel-like substance (vitreous) inside our eye begin to clump together. These clumps cast shadows onto our retina and are known as eye floaters.

When the eye floaters begin to block or impair your vision, a YAG laser vitreolysis might be a good option to remove eye floaters.

What is YAG laser vitreolysis?


YAG Laser Vitreolysis (laser eye floater removal) is a highly effective, outpatient procedure that involves the use of a nano-pulsed YAG laser to vaporize eye floaters. This procedure has a low complication rate and offers a high degree of patient satisfaction.

Using a special lens placed on the patient’s eye, the doctor focuses a YAG laser onto the front surface of the eye floater. The laser emits a short 3 nanosecond (0.000000003 seconds) burst of energy onto the floater. The laser doesn’t just break the floater into smaller pieces, the focused high power density of the laser energy converts the collagen and hyaluronic molecules of the floater to a gas, which is then re-absorbed into the eye.
