What It Means to Be a Retina Specialist
We have received advanced training and skills in testing and treating retinal eye conditions. Unlike general ophthalmologists, we went in for another two years of vitreoretinal fellowship after residency.
We get referrals from general optometrists: We get referrals from optometrists and ophthalmologists when they discover eye diseases that affect the back of the eye. Many of our referral sources are also our patients! You can come to us directly for retina care too. We leverage specialized expertise in vitreoretinal medicine to protect your eyesight.
We work with highly specialized tools: Retinal eye care is founded on innovation and research. We use breakthrough treatment techniques and approaches to successfully treat complex eye conditions for both children and adults.
We are the last line of defense: Diseases like macular degeneration, eye trauma, and retinal detachment can make you partially, if not wholly, blind. Our work is to ensure that this doesn’t happen. Your work is to schedule regular checkups or call us any time for emergency eye care.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD): AMD doesn’t have to rob you of your central vision. Today we have treatments like anti-VEGF medication and eye vitamins that can fight back against macular degeneration.
Diabetic retinopathy: As retina eye specialists, we have successfully restored vision to many patients with diabetic retinopathy. It can be a tough fight, but we are well equipped with surgical skills, medicines, eye injections, and laser treatments.
Retinal detachments: No other doctor can fix retinal detachments. This is a one of the most commonly performed procedures by retina specialists.
Macular holes: We offer various treatment options for macular holes. Macular holes are gaps that form in the light-sensing part of the retina. Treatment includes medications, eye injections, and surgery.
Today ophthalmologists specialized in retina disease can successfully treat eye conditions that made many blind in the past. It’s a wonderful time to be alive. If you would like to experience the rewarding benefits of medical eye care, call us at (941) 351-1200 or Contact Us Today!
