Good evening, thanks for the question
Complaints of patients with floaters if it does not cause significant interference where the sufferer can still be normal daily activities, generally only need observation and aggressive treatment is not recommended given the greater risk if surgery is performed. However, if symptoms are progressive and disrupt the quality of life of sufferers, some types of action may be recommended.
One of them is vitrectomy surgery which is performed for disorders of the retina and vitreous body. Vitrectomy is an action to lift the vitreous body inside the eye and be replaced with a kind of sterile fluid. This action is invasive and generally doctors can only do it if the complaint is very severe because of the potential side effects in the future, such as infection or cataracts. Choice of other methods such as laser vitreolysis, but the risk of causing damage to the retina.
Both of these actions have their own risks, so you need to do further consultation with an ophthalmologist to find out whether or not your condition can be treated. Convey your concerns and also your expectations about the development of this disease in the future as a consideration for doctors determining the right method.
