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.

Cosa sono le miodesopsie?

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.

C'è una cura?

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.

Riconosciamo che le miodesopsie sono una malattia del vitreo.

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.

Come raggiungeremo questo obiettivo

multiple 11
-- Phase 1


La semplice iscrizione alla nostra newsletter aiuterà i nostri sforzi di ricerca.

È vitale che il vero numero di pazienti con floater oculari sia conosciuto, permettendoci di mostrare ai ricercatori medici, ai governi e all'industria quanto sia diffusa questa condizione.

-- Phase 2


Le donazioni sono essenziali per finanziare la ricerca medica.

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

Gruppo di pressione

Con un numero sufficiente di membri, possiamo chiedere un cambiamento nella comunità medica.

L'industria farmaceutica ha bisogno di numeri concreti per dedicare finanziamenti e risorse. Il nostro gruppo di pressione unificato si tradurrà in diagnosi e trattamenti migliori.

multiple 11
-- Phase 4

La cura

In questa fase, gli studi clinici saranno estesi agli esseri umani.

Questo può essere raggiunto solo con un gruppo di pressione attivo e con fondi sufficienti. La fase 4 porterà a una cura sicura, efficace e accessibile per questa malattia.
