We provide professional support in Eye floats and vitreolysis.
Floating objects in the eye, which are seen in most
people in the society and reduce the quality of life, can cause serious
problems in some people, reducing vision.
Although eye floaters can occur in one eye, in
some cases it can affect both eyes. In both cases, flashes of light may
indicate underlying retinal detachment disease.
There is a jelly-like liquid that fills the inside of the
eye. This fluid consists of many invisible filaments. These
filaments, which are normally attached to the eye wall, can become visible when
loosened and separated. Rarely, these floaters may be in the form of drops
or large dark shadows. This should not be overlooked as it may be an
indication of bleeding.
Although shadowing in the eye is generally seen after
middle age, it can also be seen in young ages. These complaints are seen
at an earlier age and more frequently, especially in myopia, people who have
had cataract surgery, and those with intraocular inflammation.
Floaters in the eye are often seen when looking at a
white surface or flat surface such as the sky. Laser treatment is now
applied for patients who were sent back with the words “You will get used
to it”, “It will go out of sight in time”, “It will disappear
on its own” and “Don’t worry about it”.
With vitreolysis laser treatment, it is possible to
eliminate or reduce the objects that cause these floaters in the back of the
Vitreolysis treatment is an outpatient operation and
takes a few minutes. An eye drop that provides a mild anesthetic effect is
applied before the operation and the patient does not need to stay in the
hospital overnight. Early diagnosis and timely intervention are very
important in treatment.
* If you have started to see objects floating
in front of your eyes and you see flashes of light with them, you should
definitely be examined by an ophthalmologist.
