WHAT ARE FLOATERS?
Abnormal objects that obscure your line of sight, like specks, clouds, or lines, are known as floaters in the eye care field. While the majority of people may have noticed these specks before, many don't know that they're actually formed by tiny clumps of vitreous gel, the fluid that fills the middle portion of the eye. Seeing floaters is actually fairly common and does not typically indicate a more serious problem. However, if the presence of floaters is hindering your sight or causing an inconvenience, skilled eye surgeon R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. and his team provide premier techniques to restore your comfort and visual acuity. Contact our team at The Eye Center of Southern Indiana in Bloomington, IN if floaters are disrupting your vision.
WHAT IS LASER FLOATER REMOVAL?
In many cases, being nearsighted (myopia) is a risk factor for developing floaters. While floaters could indicate a more serious issue, this is not always the case. Once our team determines the cause of your floaters, we will inform you if laser floater removal is the recommended route or if further care may be needed to address a bigger problem.
The surest way to reduce the number of floaters obscuring your vision is by performing laser floater removal or vitreolysis. This treatment utilizes cutting-edge technology to target the clumps of eye fluid and vaporize them, eliminating them from your line of sight. This treatment is fully noninvasive and is safe for patients of all ages.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
