I spent $1400 on 2 flights to Florida plus $3000 for all the treatments. My eyesight isn't really any better, just different I had a PVD that caused a blurry spot. Now I have a tread like floater and a few tiny floaters that move around. It's an annoying distraction and if I knew that it's impossible to get rid of all of the floaters I never would have done it. The treatment involved breaking up the large floaters but they don't completely vanish, many just get smaller.
I recently visited the office of Dr. Scott Geller for vitreous floater laser treatment. Assured that the procedure would be painless (“You don’t feel anything”), I scheduled four days of laser treatment on both eyes. However, I found the experience extraordinarily uncomfortable and left Dr. Geller’s office after the first floater treatment. From Dr. Geller’s website: “Dr. Geller will then place a lens on your eye which keeps your eye open and allows him to see the back of the eye.” Dr. Geller failed to mention that he would jab the lens into my eye every few seconds, briskly yanking my eye around manually. Also from Dr. Geller’s website: “He will want you to keep your teeth together, keep your head forward and very still. We may help you hold your head forward.” When I was unable to stare into an intensely bright light for 3-4 minutes without squirming away in agony, Dr. Geller “helped me” by grabbing my chin and growling, “You have to hold still”. If you can stare into the sun for 3-4 minutes without blinking, don’t mind having your eyes jabbed and yanked, want to be man handled… then by all means, go see Dr. Geller for vitreous floater laser treatment.
Some of the most bothersome and anxiety producing eye floaters can be effectively treated with laser vitreolysis. Dr. Geller has perfected the technique with many years of experience. If your eye doctor has told you that nothing can be done about floaters and that you will get used to them you may want to get a second opinion from Dr. Geller. I had a very bothersome Weiss ring vaporized with his Yag laser. I feel like I got my life back and feel normal again. I am so happy I decided to make the appointment and go ahead with the treatment. It's worth it to be evaluated. Dr. Geller has helped thousands of patients and he understands how devastating it can be dealing with these floaters. He takes the time to explain everything that he is doing and what to expect from the treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Geller.
Highly competent, skilled physician. Personable and honest. Spends the time necessary with his patients. I recommend without hesitation.
