What is Yag Vitreolysis?

Yag Vitreolysis is also called “Floater busting”. It is a non-invasive, pain free procedure that can eliminate the visual disturbance caused by floaters. The goal of vitreolysis is to remove the hindrance caused by floaters. Vitreolysis works by applying nanosecond pulses of laser to evaporate vitreous opacities and cut vitreous strands. During this process the collagen and hyaluronic acid molecules are converted to gas. This results in the floater being removed or reduced in size so it does not impede vision . If you have problems with floaters you can make an appointment to have them assessed for treatment at Cairns Eye and Laser Centre.
