In this video interview, Paul Inder Singh addresses the clinical impact of floaters and the success of laser floater removal in his practice.
"I have been privy first-hand to the changes in how our profession perceives laser vitreolysis. On one hand, the poor historical data and the fact that many consider laser vitreolysis beyond their comfort zone (because it does not follow traditional conventions and is not taught in medical schools and residency programs), has led to initial pushback. On the other hand, patients and ophthalmologists are becoming increasingly aware of this procedure and the new technology, which is triggering growing acceptance of the potential benefits of laser vitreolysis. Although it is still considered novel and “outside-of-the-box” to apply a different use to something as familiar as a YAG laser, doctors are now beginning to grasp the potential benefits of using different energy profiles and visualization systems to make treatment of floaters possible."
