General & Specialty Services
We provide a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic treatments for both simple and complex conditions eye conditions.
We welcome same day and urgent referrals for age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye exams, and surgical consultations.
Please see images below with links for further information on a few of the most common retina conditions we routinely evaluate.
Please contact us to schedule an appointment.
AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION (AMD)
Age-related macular degeneration is the most common cause of blindness in patients older than 65. Symptoms include blurry vision, distorted vision, difficulty reading, and glare. Treatments may include vitamins and office based treatments.
DIABETIC RETINOPATHY (DR)
Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss in the working age population and may cause irreversible vision loss if untreated. All diabetic patients should receive an annual dilated eye exam. Treatments may include medications, laser treatments, or surgery.
RETINAL DETACHMENT (RD)
Retinal detachment occurs when the light-sensitive retina that lines the inside of the eye separates from the eye wall. Symptoms include flashes of light, floaters, and loss of peripheral vision. Treatment for a retinal detachment may include surgery.
RETINAL VEIN OCCLUSION (RVO)
Retinal vein occlusion occurs when a vein becomes swollen in the retina causing blurry vision. Treatment may include medications administered in the office and sometimes laser procedures.
HYPERTENSIVE RETINOPATHY (HTN)
Hypertensive retinopathy is caused by elevated blood pressure. Symptoms include headache, blurry vision, floaters or flashes of light. Urgent evaluation by a retina specialist is recommended.
EPIRETINAL MEMBRANE (ERM)
Epiretinal membrane is a thin film that can form on the surface of the retina. It can cause blurry vision or distortion. Surgery may be recommended and vision can often be improved.
MACULAR HOLE (MH)
Macular hole is a hole in the center of the retina that can cause blurry vision and loss of central vision. Surgery may be recommended and vision can often be improved.
FLOATERS & POSTERIOR VITREOUS DETACHMENT (PVD)
Floaters look like spots, cobwebs, rings, or flies in the vision. They can be a symptom of a retinal tear or retinal detachment and should be evaluated by a retina specialist. Treatments are available in select cases.
Uveitis is a term that describes inflammation in the eye. Uveitis can cause red eye, pain, blurry vision and floaters. Specific tests are sometimes ordered and treatments with medications can improve symptoms.
NEVUS OF THE CHOROID
A Nevus or “mole” is a collection of increased pigmented cells that can form in the eye. A nevus should be monitored by a retina specialist for signs of growth. Rarely, a nevus can transform into a melanoma, which is a serious form of cancer.
Intraocular tumors comprise a broad range of conditions, some of which are benign (not dangerous) or malignant (dangerous). The most common malignant tumor to affect the eye is intraocular melanoma. A retina specialist can help diagnose and treat intraocular tumors.
