The new technique consists of a femtosecond laser treatment for eye floaters. The patent for this method has been requested in October 2015 and it has been approved and published on 17 March 2016. The femtosecond laser technique consists firstly in measuring the volume of the vitreous humor by OCT (optical coherence tomography) to determine the area of the vitreous humor. The OCT helps to determine the safe area of the lens and of the retina. The new OCT’s can measure very precise distances. Once this area of the vitreous humor is measured then secondly the floaters are treated.
The vitreous humor is homogenized with the femtosecond laser and the eye floaters are pulverized by this method. This physical interaction will liquefy the vitreous humor which will be similar to a posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). The aim is to modify the viscosity of the vitreous and induce a PVD so that all the floaters can be treated, including the floaters in the premacular bursa. If more floaters appear after the PVD (including a weiss ring), then a subsequent treatment with the femtolaser will be performed to pulverize them all.

If you have questions, I can list them up and ask Tassignon the next time I mail her.

A lot of patients have requested their money back. I suggest everyone who donated to EOVF/Jen Ambrose ask his/her money back, legal acts also might be taken.

Hello EOVF supporters,
I have been asked to give an update on floaters research efforts. Unfortunately whenever I have an update, I always make sure to post one. There is currently no new information to share at this time. In the past year we have been presented with one research opportunity, which we are still waiting to hear more information on and see what the basic science results are that come from it are. This is the laser technique proposed by Dr. Tassignon. If EOVF does choose to support this research in the future, the funding campaign will be separate from this current campaign and not run through here.
