Dr geller assured me he was the best( he bragged a lot). He said the PVD was the easiest type of floater to get rid of. the wait averaged 2 hours each of the 5 times I was treated. After spending about $4,000 on airfare and the treatments, my vision isnt really better. Instead of one big blurry spot, I have one thread like floater and a few tiny ones. It is still annoying. As for being "painless", he was very rough with moving the lens around on my eyeball and the intense light was horrible.

On my visits he was always agitated I guess because people kept coming back with no results. Stay clear this is definitely a well executed

Dr. Geller and his staff were excellent. I was lucky to have two top retinal specialists recommend him and YAG Laser treatment. He is the leading practitioner of YAG Laser for vitreous floaters and has the most experience. He was very professional and explained the merits and limitation of YAG Laser treatment, which has low risk versus alternatives. He treated my left eye in four visits and my right eye in three visits and I experienced very significant improvement where the floaters have been s
