book cover This is the world'’s first and only physician authored book on this subject. It is based on over 6,000 procedures by the author since 1990 and has already been purchased by and has taught the procedure to over 500 eye surgeons worldwide.

Learn from this book:

  • Laser settings and treatment techniques for each type of floater;
  • How to safely treat posterior floaters using our discovery, the Moses Maneuver;
  • How to treat peripheral floaters using our "Off-Axis Lens";
  • The indications and contraindications (never do);
  • Eight methods to examine for floaters;
  • The unusually high efficacy and safety of this procedure from reading the world's only (ours) FDA supervised/Institutional Review Board clinical study;
  • How other eye diseases affect the procedure;
  • How to avoid potential complications;
  • How to test your laser's floater suitability;
  • Selection of contact lenses and gonio fluid;
  • Our evaluation of different lasers;
  • Eight ways to protect the retina used on every shot;
  • The many research projects, techniques, and devices the author has designed for this procedure;
  • Laser plasma physics for floater vaporization;
  • All needed forms, letters, permit, post-operative handout, and coding.

Laser treatment of eye floaters:

  • is a painless, non-invasive (no intraocular infections), 20 minute office procedure;
  • there are no restrictions on activities;
  • there is almost always full recovery in 24 hours;
  • very low complication rate (0.16%);
  • low complication rate justifies treatment of visually significant floaters;
  • it is a precise obliteration of the floaters without removal of vitreous;
  • is equally appropriate for general ophthalmologists and retinal specialists;
  • is effective in approximately 92% of cases done;
  • is much safer than vitrectomy (see Chapter 2);
  • is less expensive than vitrectomy;
  • largely vaporizes floaters, not break them into smaller floaters
  • there is no bleeding because there is no blood supply to floaters;
  • uses equipment with which all eye surgeons are familiar (a YAG laser and a surgical contact lens); and
  • laser treatment of eye floaters is an off-label use of the YAG laser (see FDA and Floaters page).
