I returned to Ohio from Florida today. I am 62 and have had floaters for 50 years. I have dozens of lines, knots, etc. in both eyes, but on March 20 of 2004 I experienced a PVD in my right eye that resulted in two huge blobs and a smaller "cloud" in the central area of my eye. I no longer enjoyed every day activities, such as shopping, reading, playing with grandkids, etc. I did not feel comfortable driving or substitute teaching. Just "seeing" was difficult and tiring! In October I visited Dr. Karichkoff, who successfully disrupted a Weiss ring that he said was the largest he had ever seen. He did not, however, attempt to remove the second blob which he said was too close to my lens. He suggested I have a vitrectomy. My vision had improved, but my quality of life was still unacceptable. I e-mailed my story to Dr Geller, who said he would see what he could do before I opted for the invasive surgery. My husband and I flew to FL on Sunday. On Monday, April 11, Dr. Geller saw what he called a "monstrous" floater. He considered my situation a challenge, but was confident he could help. He treated the floater with lasers on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday (today). I am thrilled to report that it is gone! I still have many floaters, but they do not prevent me from seeing. I'm looking forward to enjoying life again! I can't thank Dr. Geller enough for what he has done. He is congenial as well as skillful. His staff is great. Melody was very helpful with the scheduling and paperwork, and Tina was especially supportive. I am planning to return next year to have some of the other annoying opacities disrupted.
