hi. i'm back from manila after a medical check-up at the American eye center. i thought the doctor there was receptive of the vitrectomy as a cure for my floaters for two yrs. I had 20-20 vision so he discouraged me. But, i told him I can't live with these floaters anymore. he said mine are small.
i realized here in philippines there's no treatment that opthalmologists can advise for floaters and that FOV is not acceptable to them because of certain risks.
they won't operate your floaters unless you're going blind.
how sad i'll have to bear the floaters for the rest of my life? the doctor said it'll take 5 yrs for the floaters to disappear? is that true????
