Free Book: Laser Treatment of Eye Floaters


book cover This is the world's first and only physician authored book on this subject. It is based on over 6,000 procedures by the author during his 29 years of floater treatment and has already been purchased by and has taught the procedure to over 500 eye surgeons worldwide.  The author, John Karickhoff, M.D. has retired and is giving his book to the medical profession.  The e-book you will download is improved over the hard-back version since it: (1) has been updated to 2019, (2) has 112 colored illustrations (hard-back had 36), and (3) in the index, 24 of the most helpful and essential topics have been high-lighted in red.

Laser treatment of eye floaters:

  • is a painless, non-invasive (no intraocular infections), 20 minute office procedure;
  • there are no restrictions on activities;
  • there is almost always full recovery in 24 hours;
  • very low complication rate (0.16%);
  • low complication rate justifies treatment of visually significant floaters;
  • is equally appropriate for general ophthalmologists and retinal specialists;
  • is effective in approximately 92% of cases done
  • largely vaporizes floaters, not break them into smaller floaters
  • there is no bleeding because there is no blood supply to floaters;
  • uses equipment with which all eye surgeons are familiar (a YAG laser and a surgical contact lens); and
  • laser treatment of eye floaters is an off-label use of the YAG laser (see FDA and Floaters page).
