We are happy to announce that the research lead by Dr. Tassignon has made a major breakthrough regarding femto-laser for threatening floaters.

On 15.09 it is confirmed that the research perfomed in Ghent University was able to treat vitreous floaters in vitro using the femtosecond laser. They now know which type of laser wavelenght that works best.

Updates will come shortly.

Hello common fighters,

It has been a long time since our last update.  Unfortunately, our campaign does not bring us the income that we was hoping for (yet!)   

But there is some great news to tell: Dr Marie-José Tassignon and her team will work on the funding anyway - it may take some longer time before the research can start, but it also mean that its not all relaying on us!  Every income from our campaign will go directly to Marie-José Tassignon every half year -  with the first transfer soon. 

We also know that it is common sufferers out there working with other doctors as well, and other type of treatment and our organisation support them 100%.  Hopefully we can update our website soon with a list of others research.  Please tell us at Facebook or [email protected] if you have any information about other interest group(s)

International Ophthalmic Floaters Society created
International Ophthalmic Floaters Society is a new organisation with medical professionals working together on our cause created in Copenhagen this september.  EFRO think it is very positive that so many doctors now are united on this.  They will open a website shortly, and we will update you as soon as we know anything further.
