The eye floater symptoms presented themselves rather suddenly and I was fortunate to find Dr Lowe and get in his care quickly. The entire experience was a blessing high in trust. The entire office staff is highly professional, they exude confidence and personality. One senses they are a well structured Team. Dr Lowe? Well he is one great Ophthalmologist in my opinion!

After cataract surgery, I developed a large floater in my right eye. I was sent to Dr. Lowe and suggested laser for removal of the floater. Cost was $1500. I had 3 treatments and after the 3rd, I believed that the floater was gone. After 1 week, it came back with a vengeance. After I was told that the left eye was good, i now have numerous floaters. It is a challenge every day to see. I was called to come back. I will not spend another dime for something that doesn't work.
In certain cases floaters are simply too large to vaporize completely with the laser. In these unusual cases a surgical vitrectomy may be advisable.

Good doctor and effective treatment, but he books a lot of appointments at the same time and therefore wait times are very long.

I have been going to Dr. Lowe for 10 plus years for vision problems related to Diabetes. I have always found him to be very competent and knowledgeable.
