What is Vitrectomy?
Floaters are very common grey, linear objects that float in your vision and, if severe, can interfere with your ability to read, use a computer and, sometimes, drive safely. VMR Institute has developed a safe, limited vitrectomy, which is a minimally-invasive procedure performed to remove eye floaters without risks of infection or retinal detachment.
25 Gauge “Limited” Floater Vitrectomy
Our sutureless technique uses very small (25 gauge) instruments. By only removing floaters and a limited amount of vitreous, we have decreased the need for subsequent cataract surgery from as high as 80% of cases to only 16.9% of our cases after three years.
This 10-minute procedure is done under local anesthesia in an ambulatory surgery center, not a hospital, making the process that much quicker and painless.
The secret to our success is that we only remove the floaters and not the entire vitreous body that lines the inside of the back of the eye. We also leave some vitreous in front to protect the lens from developing cataract, because vitreous contains natural anti-oxidants.
Successful Treatment for Floaters
We are happy to help alleviate our patients’ suffering by offering a definitive eye floaters cure. We are proud to offer this new safe and highly effective cure for floaters.
We have proven that floaters can reduce vision and contrast sensitivity (the ability to distinguish 50 shades of grey). Vitrectomy can restore that vision loss back to normal.
