YAG Laser Vitreolysis is a newer treatment for floaters. Vitreous floaters are common and can degrade the quality of your vision. The majority of the eye's interior is filled with vitreous, which is a gel-like substance to support the eye maintaining a round shape. There are millions of fine fibers intertwined within the vitreous that are attached to the surface of the retina, the eye's light-sensitive tissue. This procedure is on an outpatient basis and has a low complication rate.
