Hey Guys since I am new to this forum I have been looking through the threads of the last couple of years, I have seen a lot of threads that give potential hope for future treatment but then as you read through the pages and time goes on...it's like nothing materialises. It's pretty depressing to read them.
Anyway since I am a fairly new sufferer and am just getting to know the situation I would appreciate if fellow members can give me an account of what is likely to happen in the near future...(that is if anything happens at all)
First of all this Ocriplasmin that I hear in threads in this section, is this ever going to be used or has it failed as a treatment?
Is Enzymatic treatment in general likely to advance in the next few years or will nothing ever come of this? (In terms of inducing a PVD etc)
Is FOV treatment likely to become more widespread, stay the same...or die off? I would say the treatment is probably being used the last few years as often as it ever has for floaters, is this likely to keep on increasing and more and more surgeons will start to do it? I would assume the risk factor would slowly be on the fall, as the surgery becomes more known, and better equipment is used.
You would think that the majority of eye doctors would realise that if patients are capable of spending £4000+ on eye surgery to remove these things that it is a SERIOUS issue. It really angers me. Clearly NOBODY would risk their vision and their finances for something that is so trivial...so why don't they wake up and realise that for some people this is a serious problem that should be researched much more than it is.
