My eye surgeon says the only way I can clear my vision and rid my eye of BAD floaters is to remove the vitrious gel and replace it with sterile fluid. Has anyone had this done? What about results? Thanks for your input! Jim

Thanks Gentlemen, for the response. If there's any more out there, I'd love to hear them. This is a MAJOR decision for me and I can use all the info I can get. Thanks, Jim

I had the surgery last fall, approximately November. Good point is it cleared out my floaters. I could see perfectly. They said the down side was I could get a cataract. Sure enough, by the end of the year, my vision was dimming. I had my glasses changed the second week in January, and my vision was real bad when I left the Spring Grand a couple of days early. I had cataract surgery the 27th of Feb., on that eye. Three weeks later I had cataract surgery on the other eye. I now have 20.15 vision in both eyes. I do not wear glasses--the first time since the 4th grade. And another down side I must mention is the rest of your trap shooters are in trouble this year!

I have the floaters, getting worse by the year. My eye MD says there's enough risk to the procedure that he'd not recommend it in my case yet. I certainly can drive and do most things without concern but nothing like a clear blue sky and watching clays to have the floaters distract....breakemall....Bob Dodd

I try hard to ignore the floaters. For some goofy reason they seem more noticeable with my V-Lite lenses than they are with Medium Target Orange. I have no explanation for this.
