    I have seen several posts about Laser treatment for floaters.

    I have heard of a YAG-Laser surgery which "cuts" attached floaters
    with a laser so they may fall to the bottom of the viterous humor and
    essentially go-away.

    a) Anyone had any luck with this procedure?
    b) If so, what were the floaters like before and after?

    I have also heard of another type of laser surgery (via news threads)
    that purpotedly blasts floaters (asteroids style) into smaller
    floaters. Questions:

    a) Is this the same laser as the YAG laser?
    b) What kind of success have people seen with this?
