i did email this website and got a reply saying to ask my eye doctor about this before trying I suggest everyone else do the same and report back here on what your doctor says! my doc has never heard of tis before but is checking it out. im unsure of this and will not waste money unles it really is a cure!
Hey. I am 16 years old and have fairly recently started getting floaters in both eyes but mainly the right. Basically, I would love to try this treatment that is being discussed here but if i mentioned it to an optician or doctor I'm pretty sure i'd get ignored or just told that nothing can be done about them since 16 year olds obviously dont have a clue about anything compared to adults . Anyway. I was just hoping that Smile would give us all the basic information about this treatment and the results that he/she experienced as a result of it along with the approx cost of the treatment. If I can then get the doctor to read this then maybe they will actually check it out for me rather than me just being ignored and told to get used to it. Any help on this from Smile or anyone else who reads this would be greatly appreciated Cheers.
Smile...... what is the name of your local hospital? They must have a clinical protocol which they follow for floater treatment and surely must have collected some data either qualitative or quantitative which could be useful to other clinicians and patients. Please share the information.
Well, my eye doctor recommended me the bioptron light treatment. Don't know if you mention it to your doc and he/she doesn't know anything about bioptron or polarised light treatment then I think you will be ignored.
You should try to find out what meadical institutions in your country are using this polarised light treatment also known as bioptron.
I got the treatment done in a private clinic I doubt that they have any protocols or keep any logs except patiens log where they write what treatments they do. So there's no log to prove or vice versa thre effectivenes of bioptron agains floaters.
But it did really work for me, It might not work for you but at least you need to give it a try.
to RxTech, floater treatment ussually is done in specialized eye clinics only as far as I know, so don't know if they use bioptron or not.
The procedure was not very expensive about 100$ but that is converted from my local currency.

I was wondering, how long have you had floaters in your life before trying the Bioptron machine?
If it wasn't for long, maybe your floaters were destined to go away and the machine was not the reason for their dissapearance? Also, do you really not see them AT ALL now when outside on a sunny day? Or maybe you still see them but very lightly?
I am just skeptical about this treatment or any other treatment except for an FOV, but if this as a chance to work, I may actually try it out using the COMPACT version of the device.
I hope you are not a person just hired to make us buy the Bioptron light, aka advertisement. Sorry if I sound harsh but it wouldn't be the first time someone tries that on a floater board.
Thanks for replying. I couldn't find any information about bioptron regarding floaters. Who recommended this? Did you get the treatment specifically for floaters or was it just a positive side effect? Are there any websites which give information about this treatment being used to treat floaters? Thanks again.
The eye doctor (N.Ivanova) doctor at the clinic the treatment was done recommended it. Try to ask them about it email@example.com
I have seen previous posts about a doctor, Doctor Luftig who recommended light therapy to treat retina problems as well as floaters. He practiced about 50 years ago and wrote a few books. He said that when the vitreous was exposed to certain light frequencies that it would firm up and the floaters would eventually be absorbed. I find the bioptron interesting because it sounds similar to the light therapy described earlier
