At Retinal Eye Care Associates we strive to provide the best eye care available anywhere in the county. To achieve this goal, Dr. Lowe and his staff actively participate in continuing medical education to remain clinically up-to-date. Additionally, the practice’s diagnostic and treatment capabilities rival those of any other ophthalmic practice in the county.
Laser floater removal, also referred to as laser vitreolysis, is an effective outpatient-based procedure for the treatment of floaters. Minimally invasive, it overcomes many off the risks associated with vitrectomy and offers a high degree of patient satisfaction.
Young people and adolescents may also suffer from vitreous strands and opacities, due to embryonic remains in the vitreous, or due to trauma. Myopic patients with longer eyes can develop a detachment of the hyaloid, the “envelope” which contains the vitreous. This hyaloid may become fibrotic, resulting in shadows in the patient’s visual pathway.

I had huge and annoying floaters that interfered with my daily activities. I kept trying to blink these floaters out of the way! Finally after months of frustration my general Ophthalmologist referred me to Dr. Peter Lowe. Dr. Lowe explained the Vitreolysis Procedure and took the time to answer all of my questions. During the procedure I could see my floaters vaporize. Now, I can see so much clearer and my floaters have vanished. Dr. Lowe is a great Ophthalmologist. My overall office experience was excellent. I came in and only waited a few minutes and then the procedure was done.
