Surgery can remove them; they suck the liquid in the eye (with the floater).

Hope this help :)

thanks algis i now about the surgerys "vitrectomy" and "YAG-laser" but i read that:

the first option can cause extreme side effects even blindness
the second often causes even more floaters :(

So my personal opinion is liberation will not help but nevertheless i have hope that someone made another experience?

Can only speak from my experience: I was 80% blind because of cataracts. When the Dr. fixed them she said "while I'm in I'll remove all floaters and debris...".

Since then I see like a 15 y.o. kid.

(of course removal of the cataracts - the lens - leave you with glasses - far or close - your choice)

I, too, have an extremely large eye floater for at least 18 years. I have tried my hardiest here in Minnesota to find a Doctor willing to use laser but they won't do it due to complications. Seems it is very risky I'm told. I agree that it is so annoying & interferes with reading in that eye. If anyone knows of a Doctor willing to treat I would appreciate it, also.

couple months ago I had floaters for the first time-- very annoying and I went to my vitamin guy ( who I completely truct and love) who said it's a yeast thing-- what? then i did some internet research and I thought why not try it-- so I removed all sugar from my diet ( yes even fruit) for two weeks- yes it sucked-- sugar feeds the yeast- yadda yadda- anyway-- truth is-- it absolutely worked-- took a while- then one day i said to myself- hey something is different and I realized I didn't have the floaters anymore--

i swear it worked for me

I have tons of floaters and flashes due to multiple retinal detachments. I had to have surgery where a buckle was placed around my left eye as the retina was so severely detached, and had to have 3 laser surgeries on my right eye.

This did increase the floaters & flashes. My eye doctor says it's to risky to do anything about the floaters and I just have to live with them. Yes, they're damn distracting, I have to look around them & at them, but I'd rather have them than be blind, which I surely would have been if my retina surgeon wasn't so excellent.

Believe me, the flashes are worse than the floaters as it's like fireworks everytime someone turns out the light.
