Laser Floater Removal in Houston, TX
Texas Retina Center is pleased to offer laser floater removal in Houston utilizing the latest Ultra-Q Reflex laser.
Laser floater removal, also known as
laser vitreolysis, is a non-invasive,
non-surgical, painless outpatient
treatment that works by focusing
a YAG (yttrium-aluminum-garnet)
laser at the floater(s) to vaporize
them, converting the proteinaceous
components of the floater(s) into gas, which is then naturally reabsorbed within the eye.
This eye floater treatment is available to patients who experience persistent floaters adversely affecting their vision, and typically takes a few minutes per session. One eye is treated at a time. Occasionally more than one session per eye is required. Side effects may include minimal discomfort and seeing small spots in your vision, both of which typically resolve on their own.
To find out if you're a candidate for laser floater removal, contact Dr. Kavoussi's office at (832) 306-3209 to schedule an appointment and learn more.
