clear vision

The VDM Project aims to unite eye floater patients and change perceptions of this condition within the medical community and the world in general. Only by doing this can we develop a safe and effective cure.

Qu'est-ce qu'un "Corps Flottant" ?

Eye floaters are dark disturbances in your vision. They may look like black or gray specks, strings, or cobwebs that drift about when you move your eyes. For some people, this can be a debilitating condition that has a significant impact on quality of life. Floaters arise from the gel that fills the center of the eye, called vitreous. Vitreous Floaters can affect the patients’ ability to concentrate, read, drive, and enjoy outdoor activities. Those who experience floaters often report symptoms of severe depression and anxiety.

Y a-t-il un remède ?

While options do exist, they come with risks of life-altering complications from vision loss. Although these outcomes are very rare, the VDM Project is striving for new safe and effective cure(s), restoring clear vision to eye floater patients.

But we need your help.

Nous reconnaissons que les corps flottants sont une maladie du vitré.

Led by world-renowned vitreo-retinal ophthalmologist Dr. J. Sebag, we are a non-profit organization with the goal of improving our understanding and management of this disease, ultimately preventing eye floaters. As a first step to having eye floaters recognized as a clinical disease, Dr. Sebag coined the term ‘Vision Degrading Myodesopsia’ (VDM). Following this milestone, we are now organizing a global effort to find a safer cure for patients.

Comment nous y parviendrons

-- Phase 1


Le simple fait de s'inscrire à notre bulletin d'information contribuera à nos efforts de recherche.

Il est essentiel que le nombre réel de patients souffrant de flottement oculaire soit connu, ce qui nous permettra de montrer aux chercheurs médicaux, aux gouvernements et à l'industrie à quel point cette affection est répandue.

-- Phase 2


Les dons sont essentiels pour financer la recherche médicale.

This not-for-profit movement is currently organized by a team of volunteers. Funding is essential to research a safe cure for eye floaters.

-- Phase 3

Groupe de pression

Avec un nombre suffisant de membres, nous pouvons exiger un changement dans la communauté médicale.

L'industrie pharmaceutique a besoin de chiffres concrets pour consacrer des fonds et des ressources. Notre groupe de pression unifié permettra d'améliorer les diagnostics et les traitements.

-- Phase 4

Le remède

Dans cette phase, les essais cliniques seront étendus à l'homme.

Cela ne peut être réalisé qu'avec un groupe de pression actif et un financement suffisant. La phase 4 aboutira à un traitement sûr, efficace et accessible de cette maladie.
