At Mazzuca Eye and Laser Centers, we now offer Vitreolysis or Laser Floater Removal.
Floaters are small pieces of debris that float in the eye’s vitreous humor. This debris casts shadows on to the retina (the light-sensitive tissue layer at the back of the eye). If you have floaters, it is these shadows that you see floating across your field of vision.
In the past, eye surgery was required to remove these impurities.
We have a new laser system which more safely vaporizes the floaters. The process is usually quite simple and the treatment itself lasts 10-20 minutes.
Please call Mazzuca Eye and Laser Centers for more information about this new procedure.
