New technology could completely eliminate eye floaters

Volume 14    |   Issue 102

One of the little annoyances many people deal with as they age relates to their vision. While we expect our vision to decrease as we age, we often don't expect the irritation of eye floaters. Yet when they do begin popping up, we tend to just accept them as an inevitable part of aging. If you've been bothered by these floaters, I have good news for you. You may be able to decrease them or get rid of them altogether. There are a couple of ways you can go about doing this.

You've probably heard of laser treatments that correct vision, but many people don't think of using lasers to get rid of floaters. However, researchers at the Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston wanted to see if a laser procedure called YAG vitreolysis could help. For their study, they recruited 52 patients who were experiencing eye floaters. The researchers randomly divided the patients into two groups. One group, which contained 36 patients, received the YAG laser vitreolysis treatment. The other group of 16 received a placebo treatment.

After six months, the differences between the two groups were clear. Over half (54%) of the treatment group reported a significant improvement in eye floaters. In fact, 19 patients (53%) reported that their floaters were significantly or completely improved. Only 9% of the placebo group reported an improvement, and none of them said their symptoms were gone altogether. Those who had received the treatment also reported improvements in their quality of life overall, particularly as their vision improvements allowed them greater independence.

I understand that not everyone wants to undergo laser treatment — especially since this study indicates you have about a 50/50 chance of experiencing an improvement. But I do think this study gives us hope that laser treatments can provide relief in the future as technology continues to refine them.

In the meantime, I have another suggestion for improving your eyesight: Advanced Vision Formula. This blend of 15 nutrients is designed to support healthy vision. By improving your eye health, you can reduce eye strain, decrease floaters, and protect your vision from deterioration as you age. Like the participants in the study, you may find that making a simple change to improve your vision significantly improves your quality of life. Sometimes we don't realize just how big these "little annoyances" are until they're gone.

Yours for better health,
