As vitreoretinal specialists, we provide comprehensive medical and surgical treatment for all disorders of the retina, macula and vitreous. We focus on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of these conditions.
The retina is the nervous tissue that lines the back surface of the eye and sends visual images to the brain. It can be compared to the film in a camera. The central portion of the retina - the macula - is responsible for reading vision. The cavity of the eye is filled with a clear gel called the vitreous.
Many abnormalities of the retina and vitreous may cause visual loss. These disorders include macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, macular holes, macular edema and epiretinal membranes. Limiting our practice strictly to vitreoretinal disease enables us to provide a high level of specialization and expertise in treating these difficult conditions. Thus, we do not prescribe glasses nor do we perform cataract or LASIK surgery. We will keep your referring doctor informed of our findings, your treatment and your progress.
