I was in LA at the end of a period of traveling and chose to go down to Irvine Orange County to speak to Dr. Johnson.
Seeing Mr Moriarty would have been far more convenient living in Europe but was in California and so thought that I would give Dr. Johnson as he only treats floaters rather than just a number of things. I saw Mr Bailey in London a few years back and had said that my floater was untreatable, it turns out that he does not even use a contact lens to treat which is ridiculous and would certainly say he fits the bill of the money drain rather than experienced. Although I still have some spots of floater in my vision the large one is 99% gone and can look around in low light and see no floaters at all which is amazing. I will return at some point to get the last few specs zapped away. Also I should really ad that there is a triangular mirror used by Dr Johnson in California that the other guys don't seem to use and this was the only way of zapping it as it was in a hard to get to place.
I felt I should write my experience on this board to give some hope as obviously most people who are successfully treated I guess don't go back onto forums to share their experiences as much as those with bad experiences. 3 days in a row 2,000 dollars and a few nights hotel costs and has made a great difference for me. I literally saw the floater turn to gas bubbles and float away in my vision straight after, was a great feeling. Moral of the story I guess avoid the pretension of 'Harley Street' in London, the guy is twice the price and clearly did not have the right skill/equipment, just charges he 700 dollars (approx) to tell you he can see the floaters but cant treat them due to him not using the lens the other guys use.
If something bothers you that much then it is worth seeing more than one person to get the desired result, even of its means some world travels and a year or two of saving and persistence.
