Diabetic Retinopathy and Macular Edema

Diabetics require regular eye screenings to prevent vision loss from diabetic retinal disease. Advanced diabetic eye disease requires in-office and surgical treatment to save and improve vision

Macular Pucker and Macular Holes

Macular puckers and macular holes are created when tractional membranes form on the surface of the macula. These membranes can cause distortion and blurring which may require surgical intervention.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration comes in wet and dry forms. Each can have devastating effects on your vision. If you are experiencing distortions or dark voids in your vision you may be a candidate for a vision saving treatment.

Retinal tears and detachments

If you are experiencing flashes or floaters, or have been diagnosed with a retinal tear or detachment you may require an in-office laser procedure or surgery. Urgent evaluation is often essential.

Ocular inflammatory disease

The immune system can attach the internal structures of the eye causing macular edema and progressive vision loss. Proper m[anagement will require close coordination with your primary care provider and rheumatologist.

Retinal Vein Occlusion

Retinal vein occlusions can cause a sudden painless loss of vision. Medical treatments are available and can improve your vision.
