Retina Diseases & Surgery
At Eye Associates working to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases of the retina is an important part of what our fellowship trained Retinal Specialists & Vitreoretinal Surgeons do each and every day. As Retinal Specialists they examine patients who experience flashes of light and floaters to be sure they are not experiencing retinal tears or retinal detachment as well as provide advanced diagnostic testing and evaluation for diabetic eye problems including diabetic macular edema and diabetic retinopathy. The Eye Associates Retina Specialists have been involved in many levels of clinical trials to evaluate the best ways to provide early detection, diagnosis and treatment of macular disease including age related macular degeneration (AMD) with Eyelea® and Lucentis® injections as well as treatment of macular hole and pucker with retinal membrane peeling surgery and vitrectomy. Finally, our Retina Specialists work cooperatively with primary care physicians to understand the causes, make the proper diagnosis and implement the necessary treatment for patients with the full range of retinal vascular disease such as retinal artery occlusion and retinal vein occlusion.
To support the needs of patients with retina problems of any type who require laser treatment or surgery, the Eye Associates & SurgiCenter operating suites are completely equipped with the most advanced instrumentation for retina surgery, retina laser procedures and retina diagnostic procedures so as to facilitate our retina surgeons’ ability to treat the relatively common retina problems as well as the complex retinal detachments and vitreoretinal diseases.
