Hi, I am scheduled for a Floaters Only Vitrectomy (FOV) and a concurrent Capsulotomy for Posterior Capsular Opacity (PCO) on my left eye on December 3rd. As I understand it, PCOs are very common in post cataract patients and capsulotomy is a simple YAG laser procedure. I was encouraged to go forward with the FOV by Dr. Sebag, on-line articles and my ophthalmologist/vitreo-retinal specialist. The surgery has been described as 99 percent effective and this runs similar to cataract surgery success profile. Also, the fact that I will have capsulotomy FIRST should afford me excellent chance of -0- floaters after the FOV.

Of course, I am very thankful to you for starting and expanding this discussion group. Your reports have been very helpful in my decision. I am very hopeful of a positive surgery result and I will be in touch. Happy Thanksgiving
