An update from Dr Tassignon

Is there any news, Dr Tassignon?

– It is evident that the knowledge of the posterior interface improved dramatically thanks to the more performant OCT devices.Still much needs to be discovered, but we do have progress.  I met with the group from Ghent University recently. It was decided to submit a new approach of laser combined treatment. I cannot tell you more so far.

Is it still important for you to get funding from third parties? 

– I think that money will be highly appreciated. Ghent and Antwerp would like to collaborate further on a device that can measure the biomechanical properties of the vitreous body. Theze parameters will be very helpful to better understand different ocular pathologies, including postoperative retinal detachments.

  1. If you guys are looking for more funding. Happy to contribute but I would need to know more details. I’m sure others would appreciate the clarity as well.

    1. When would “open trials” begin?
    2. How does this Fempto compare with YAG laser?
    3. This site mentions this laser induces a PVD. What would be the potential advantage of this treatment vis-a-vis vitrectomy? Vitrectomy’s biggest downside is the likelihood of developing cataracts. PVD vitrectomys are more likely to cause cataracts vs core.

  2. if the research of treament is helpful to treat eye floaters, i think the whole world will denote but the fastest way is look for bill gate and others riches people.. i think they will invest case everyone will facing tis problem once day…i m one of them..

  3. I can’t speak English, so I can use google to translate possible grammars and words will be messy, but please bear with me.
    What I want to say is whether this research is for floaters or the whole Vitreous because I want to study the whole Vitreous for the floaters instead of fov.

  4. Awesome news! I would love to make a donation to this cause but the youcaring link does not seem to work. Can you fix the link! Looking forward to more updates on this research!
