The treatment for eye floaters starts with drops placed in one eye to enlarge the pupil and anaesthetize it. The patient then places the chin on a rest similar to that used for a standard eye test, with the forehead pushed against a support in order to keep the head perfectly still.
The surgeon can then start the light and laser sequence which will last up to and about forty five minutes. The only feeling experienced is a slight pulsing as the laser fires and is in no way painful. Vision in the eye will remain blurry until the drops have worn off and no discomfort will be experienced.
As a precautionary measure the surgeon will likely prescribe anti inflammatory drops for the following week and return to your normal occupation is immediate. It is usual to carry out the treatment on the other eye two to three weeks later.

As in all laser type treatments it is essential to have a highly qualified and experienced surgeon carry out the procedure. Patients who have had artificial lens replacement should take particular care over their choice of practitioner as the lens may be damaged if a mistake is made. Otherwise this is great news for eye floater sufferers who often have had to put up with the affliction with no alternative but a painful drawn out surgical procedure.
