Eye Floaters (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Medications recommended by your eye-care professional may be necessary to control underlying conditions leading to vitreous hemorrhage or retinal disease. These medications may be taken in conjunction with laser, cryotherapy, pneumatic retinopexy, vitrectomy, or retinal detachment surgery. Furthermore, some medications may be discontinued to optimize the treatment of pathologic floaters. Follow only the recommendations of your eye-care professional in conjunction with your medical doctors.
