At North Florida Cataract Specialists and Vision Care, we provide patients the most advanced treatment options available, including Laser Floater Treatment (LFT). LFT is a non-invasive in-office procedure that uses nanosecond laser pulses to break apart floater clumps, clearing up your vision. And our patients can’t say enough about how well it works for them.

Here are just a few of the comments we’ve received…

From Ennis Runkle

For about 3 to 4 years, I had been seeing these small glimpses of something out of the corner of my eye, especially at night or when I was watching TV. As years passed, it continued to get progressively worse. The last time I saw Dr. Snodgrass I mentioned how much it was now really affecting my vision. Dr. Snodgrass told me when I was ready to get those floaters taken care of that he could do it for me. At that point I was more than ready.” 

“The (Laser Floater) Treatment took just a couple minutes and was painless. I heard click, click, click from the laser and just like that it was over. In and Out.” 

“Since then, it’s been all gravy! My vision has improved greatly after the treatment in Dr. Snodgrass office. Colors are even more vivid now, too!”

“Everything went great and I feel very satisfied with the results.”

From Randolph Croft

 “I have been seeing floaters in my vision for I'd say about 10 to 12 years now. I started to really notice them when I would look across the field while I was on my tractor. Then, while reading, they became very inconvenient. I would have to stop and focus my eyes the whole time just to get them out of the way.” 

“Dr. Snodgrass did my cataract surgery. While at my post op visit, he said the technology was now available to get rid of those pesky floaters. Everyone in his office was very knowledgeable and seemed to know exactly what they were doing. I decided to have the LFT treatment done.”

“Having my floaters removed took no longer than a few minutes and was no more invasive then a basic eye exam. I would say 80% of my floaters have disappeared and I can finally read without stopping and starting the entire time. I am very happy with Dr. Snodgrass, his staff and my overall experience at his practice.”

From H. Davis 

“I’ve had floaters now for many years, but one large circular floater was really invasive. I think it’s called a Weiss Ring floater. I'd be driving and this thing would come across my vision! When making a left turn into traffic, it looked like a car was coming up on the side, and by the time I realized it wasn’t a car, one really would be there.”

“When Dr. Snodgrass told me there was a treatment available to get rid of this thing, I was really surprised, because I was always told there was nothing that could be done.”

“The treatment itself was not painful or uncomfortable at all. I will say that my eye was a little irritated for about a day afterward, but with just over the counter eye drops, it felt back to normal.”

“I’m really delighted that it (the floater) is gone and fully intend on coming back to Dr. Snodgrass for the others.”

These are just a few of the patient successes we’ve seen firsthand since becoming the only practice in the Gainesville area to offer this exciting treatment. This revolutionary treatment is delivering great outcomes for patients.
