Our doctors use advanced tools to diagnose and treat retina disease. Our testing suite includes state of the art imaging devices.
Color Ultrawide Angle Photography and Retinal Angiography
This tool allows photography of large areas of the retina and shows the blood flow to the retina, choroid (tissue under the retina), and optic nerve. It also helps make it easier for patient’s and their families to see what is happening inside the eye. We are able to better diagnose and follow the progress of retina disease with this tool.
Optical Coherence Tomography
This tool creates cross-sectional pictures of the retina, optic nerve, and front of the eye to help diagnose and monitor retina disease and glaucoma.
Ocular ultrasound (A and B Scan)
This tool uses sound waves to image the eye. We are able to examine the eye with ultrasound when issues such as a hemorrhage or severe cataract limit us from looking directly into the back of the eye. We also use this to measure tumors and other complications in the eye.
Common treatments we offer:
Pars Plana Vitrectomy – We perform this surgery in the operating room (not in the office setting) to remove the vitreous gel from the center of the eye and treat underlying retina conditions. This is a primary treatment for many conditions including retinal detachments, bleeding in the eye (vitreous hemorrhage), removal of dislocated cataracts, and severe ocular infections.
Retina Laser Treatment – We perform this in office treatment for holes or tears in the retina and treatment of bleeding retina disease such as diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusions.
Intraocular injections treat many retina conditions, drugs we use include:
