Floaters FOV

New Website for FOV and Webinar!

Vitrectomy for the removal of Floaters, Randall Wong, M.D.I have started a separate website for patients suffering from floaters and have scheduled two webinars to discuss the treatment of floaters.

There are many patients who have “floaters” which decrease their vision.  “FOV” means “Floater Only Vitrectomy” where a vitrectomy is performed to remove the vitreous, and hence, the disturbing floaters contained within.

Webinars:  FAQ’s about FOV

I have selected two separate dates to host the webinars and to discuss the more common questions and concerns regarding the treatment of floaters.  The information should be similar and have been scheduled at different times of the day and week to allow for as many time zones as possible.

You can register for either one or both.  They are free!  Just click to register.

New Website:

I started a new website for patients suffering from floaters.

I do not want to bias this site ( with information and discussion about floaters and felt that it was time to start a separate site.  Also, there are numerous forums and chat rooms for patients suffering from floaters.

I wanted to start a place where constructive and accurate information about floaters and their treatment could be discussed.  I’ve never felt comfortable “invading” other sites, so I started my own website.

What Does this Mean?

I’m proud of everything we’ve achieved on this site,  I’d like to duplicate this type of community on as I understand the needs of the two communities will be different.

The website is technically up and running, but will require a bit more effort to get some quality content so it may stand on its own.

If you are interested in signing up for the webinars, they are free.  The webinars will present the same content and I expect the Q & A sessions to be similar.

See you there and on the new site!



Webinar: The Evaluation and Treatment of Floaters

I am hosting my first webinar.  Two similar events to review the evaluation and management of floaters.   The webinars will be live and I plan to present the same material.  They are free and anyone interested is welcome to register.

What is a Webinar?

Our webinar on floaters will be a live presentation, followed by real-time interactive discussion.  Specifically, I plan a short Power Point presentation followed by a question and answer (Q & A) session.  The whole event will last an hour.  I’ve scheduled two different times to accommodate as many different people and their schedules as possible.

This is a novel idea and I’d love as much participation as possible.  Please spread the word via your own links and communities.

Webinar for Floaters

Webinar for Floaters, Randall Wong, M.D.Why a Webinar?

I really hoped to do this via a Google Hangout, but it seems, at this time, the number of participants is limited.  I am probably overlooking something, but have decided to go with a webinar.

As with a blog, webinars are interactive. Unlike a blog, the interaction is live and in real-time.  I am looking forward to communicating in real time with so many of you who have sent in comments over the past few years and look forward to greeting many more you…online!

I chosen a subject, floaters, or vitreous opacification, which is very common.  Floaters are very common and can be from a variety of causes.  Floaters, depending upon the causes and/or visual goals, may or may not need to be treated.

We can discuss Ocriplasmin, Laser Treatment, FOV….whatever you want!

My point is that many, many of you may find relevance to this particular subject and presentation.

What Does This Mean?

Really trying to try a new way to interact with my online community.  This will allow me/us to interact with one another simultaneously, versus reading a thread on the blog.  This may prove to be very exciting, stimulating and informative!

See you there!
