Eye Floaters Surgical Treatment
Although we encourage natural eye floaters treatments, there are times when nature has its limits. There are currently two widely used methods to remove eye floaters surgically, both with their corresponding risks and advantages.
Laser Treatment for Eye Floaters - This procedure is very risky and does not completely eliminate eye floaters.
FoV (Floaters Only Vitrectomy) - This procedure is mostly reserved for those whose eye floaters are creating vision impairment problems. This procedure's risks definitely outweigh its advantages as up to 30% of patients who undergo this procedure develop retinal detachment or other complications.
Although both procedures are very risky, they are being continuously researched and improved. See ongoing eye floaters research.
