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.
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.
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.
