I have struggled with really bothersome floaters for the last three years or so. I think they were a result of a PVD in both eyes. My right eye in particular was very disturbing because all the floaters were sticking together into a big moving blob right in the middle of my vision. Sports that I loved to do I was avoiding surfing, skiing, it was really depressing. Working on a computer was equally frustrating, I would change the screen to black background with white letters to try and avoid them.<br><br>I tried the YAG laser route with another local doctor and if anything, the floaters were worse than before. After hours of research and talking to a lot of people, I finally found Dr. Sebag. Not only is he the best at understanding the vitreous (he wrote the book on it) but he is doing the necessary research to show what kind of an impact floaters have in people's lives, and has pioneered the procedure to remove them with limited risk.<br><br>The procedure took 7 minutes, required no sutures, and I felt little to no pain. I was 90% recovered in a week, with 20/40 vision the next day, 20/20 after a month without correction. My prescription actually got BETTER and I no longer need glasses. I truly believe that Dr. Sebag is changing the world of medicine and how they approach floaters. Don't listen to ophthalmologists who say nothing can be done. Something can be done and it's a lot less scary than you think. <br><br>I am now floater free in my right eye. It's miraculous! I will do my left eye later this year and am excited to get back out on the slopes without all that crap floating in front of my vision. There is only one surgeon in the world I would trust with this procedure. Dr. Sebag.<br><br>You do not have to live with this affliction. For some people they aren't. Bothersome. You already know if you are one of those people.
Best ophthalmologist specializing in floaters<br><br>I had a vitrectomy surgery to remove floaters in my right eye. My floater problem has been going on for many years. I got YAG laser procedures several times before the surgery to fix the problem, but the problem kept coming back after a while. <br><br>I've been holding off for almost a year until I finally bite the bullet and decide to get the surgery. In the meantime every time I ask any questions regarding the surgery and all the sideeffects by email, he was kind enough to answer all my questions in great details and timely manner. That's another reason why I decide to go for Dr. Sebag after intensive research about the procedure and the ophthalmologists specializing in vitrectomy for floaters in greater LA area. He's caring, responsive and detail oriented. He even responded to my email regarding concerns about bleeding immediately late at night on the surgery date. Another doctor (his colleague doctor) also responded to my question over the phone immediately. It turned out to be normal and okay after all. The surgery will be over before you know it because you get twilight anesthesia. I didn't have any pain after the surgery. You don't need any pain killer. To be honest with you, your eye will look miserable after the surgery. But don't be alarmed. Blood in your eye will start to disappear noticeably in two weeks and will completely disappear in four week in my case. You can actually see clearly on next day after the surgery. You might still feel a little uncomfortable and fatigue in your eye after the surgery. Ice packs do help minimize swelling. You have to be very careful after the surgery. No exercise and always protect your eye as you're instructed. I gave up all my favorite sports after the surgery for a while because I had to protect my eye and prevent any elevated eye pressure.<br><br>Staffs are kind and friendly in general.<br><br>If you want to take care of your floater problem once for all, you won't be disappointed with Dr. Sebag. But don't just take my own word for it. Do your own research and educate yourself before the surgery on your own. He published a lot of research papers about vitrectomy and floaters. Dr. Sebag will also educate you and explain everything up front before the surgery. No surprises after the surgery.<br>I am very happy with results overall. It did improve quality of my life because I can see everything much more clearly now.
March 2018 Dr Sebag removed the large floater from my right eye. Now I have great vision in both eyes. I was told numerous times that nothing could be done. Dr. Sebag is compassionate and takes the time to educate his patients about the process. Also, he has many presentations on line that explain his life changing procedure. Oh yes, covered by insurance. Follow up is thorough, too.
I am looking at this white screen and for the first time in many years I am not seeing a bunch of squiggly lines, webs, or black dots. That's because I was at VMR Institute 2 days ago and Dr. Jerry Sebag performed a Floaterectomy on my left eye. It is now completely free of floaters. And I had absolutely no pain nor discomfort. The staff at the surgical center prep nurse Shannon, attending nurse Stefanie, and Anesthesiologist Amy were all great and Juli & Jennifer at VMR helped me through the whole process. I chose to go to Dr. Sebag because of his great expertise even though it meant driving 300 miles and paying for the procedure myself. I am very happy that I did. Highly recommend this procedure for anyone suffering with vitreous floaters.
I suffered with annoying right eye floaters for as many years as I can remember and was always told there was no way to effectively remove floaters. My brother in law had floaters in both eyes which significantly handicapped his playing golf. After my brother in law had his floaters removed by Dr. Sebag at VMR Institute he raved how incredible his vision was without floaters. <br>I went to the VMR Institute for an examination by Dr. Sebag and his staff and was told I would be a good candidate for the surgery. In every visit the staff prepared my eyes for examination by Dr. Sebag and I thought they worked well as a team. <br>After seeing a video on the invasive surgery I got scared and delayed my surgery date. I finally built up the courage to have surgery three weeks later my floater is totally gone! What a pleasure not to have a glob floating around in my right eye.<br>I found Dr. Sebag to be a very competent eye doctor.
For many years I put up with a glob of floaters in one eye that constantly distorted my vision. Most eye doctors tell you there isn't anything you can do about them and so I resigned myself to deal with them. I was referred to Dr. Sebag for a followup after a torn retina and he didn't dismiss my complaints about the floaters, which I really appreciated. They did an ultrasound and the glob was actually visible on the ultrasound. He informed me that he could do "vitrectomy surgery" to remove them. After having already had cataract surgery at a young age and surgery for a torn retina, it took me a few years to get up the nerve to have the vitrectomy surgery but I finally did it in 2016. I should have done it years ago because my vision is significantly better! Dr. Sebag's office conducted contrast sensitivity tests before and after the surgery and the improvement actually surprised me. I knew my vision was impaired but the contrast sensitivity tests proved how impacted it really was. A month after the surgery my contrast sensitivity was three times better!<br>The surgery is an outpatient procedure and only takes around 15 minutes. (However, there is a lot of waiting around and prep time.) Per his instructions I took a week off from work. The pain was minimal, mostly just a slight headache. If you want to learn more, go to Youtube and search "Dr. Sebag Answers Questions About Vitrectomy For Floaters". <br>Note: When going to his office, plan on being there for a couple of hours. Bring a book and just chill and go with the flow. He's a very matteroffact kind of guy so if you want soft warm fuzzies from your doctor he may not be the right fit for you. But if you want an excellent eye doctor, he's your guy.
This is a rude doctor who talks to patients and staff in an ugly tone. I was referred to this doctor by another doctor. I never would've gone to this doctor on my own. I'm definitely not returning to this doctor's office based on the way this doctor is. It's obvious to me his staff can put up with his rude bedside manner. I pay $ for my treatment and I don't need to be pay $ to be disrespected.
I had floater surgery on my right eye and I am so pleased at the outcome. I had so many floaters in both eyes and so I am getting ready to have him do my left eye soon. I highly recommend Dr. Sebag, he knows what he is doing!!!
Dr Sebag literally changed my life. I got a very large, dark floater in my eye when I was in my early 20s. It was hard to do anything, especially work on a bright computer screen. I saw countless ophthalmologists who all told me I was "too young" and that they "couldn't see anything" before flying out to LA. Dr. Sebag not only saw my issue and validated my concerns, he was informative and knowledgable during the whole procedure. It has been almost 5 years, and I have had zero problems and my quality of life has improved greatly. If you have annoying floaters, you don't have to live with them! HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sebag. I will say that some of these reviews are poor due to his bedside manner (although he was lovely with me) but he deserves 5+ stars for knowledge and technique, which is the most important in my book.
Dr. Sebag literally (and I do mean literally) wrote the definitive book on the anatomy and disease of the vitreous. He cured a lifelong problem with "floaters" for me in both eyes. Note that this is an area where Dr. Sebag is an active clinical researcher developing objective methods for assessing the qualify of life impact of floaters. I've found him to be a compassionate and skilled surgeon, and travel to see him from Northern California. He is a superstar!
Had a horrible experience here with this Eye Dr. He was rude, and while I was sitting in the chair waiting for my exam, not once but twice yelled at technicians in front of me. I called to cancel my next appointment because of the way this man behaved, and was convinced to come back and see the other Dr on staff. I will give an update after I see the other Dr. But avoid Dr Sebag unless you want to witness his verbal abuse of the people that work for him.
