31 Jan 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.
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.
You Must Register
Simply click on the links below and follow the directions. Participation and registration are free.
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!

Would it be possible for you to post the webinars on youtube?
Randall V. Wong, M.D.Posted at 11:54h, 02 March
Yes. Not sure when I’ll get to it, though. Hopefully within then next week.

I have been dealing with floaters opacities now for two months, I suffered an accidental hit to the eye, when I woke up the next day I had this very mobile spot that moved rapidly with any eye movement. I then went to my eye doctor who explained that I has a PVD and that its normal. I am 44 and near-sighted, he didnt think the trauma to the eye had anything to do with the floaters but I wonder because of the timing. I am from Canada and not getting much sympathy for these floaters which are having a negative impact on my lifestyle, I am presently on short-term-disability because of these annoyances. I have a family of 5 and would like my quality of life back. I am nervous about this procedure but know its necessary. Is it possible to be out completely during this procedure.
I hope I can set up an apt soon and have this done. I have read your entire website and feel comfortable with going thru with this.

No reason to be nervous, but I understand. Yes, you could be completely “out.” It’s unnecessary, but possible.
Hang in there!
Look forward to meeting you.
Don’t forget, I’ve got a webinar coming up on 1/7 and again on 1/12.
