We approach potential treatments conservatively, carefully weighing benefit against risk within your patient’s comfort level. Treatments from improved risk control, to topical use of drops, to various laser techniques, to office injections, to operating room micro-surgery may be suggested as appropriate. We frequently recommend slowly escalating treatments, such that less invasive measures are employed first, for your patient’s safety.

Our impressive array of diagnostic and therapeutic resources include:

  • Diagnostics: 3-D reconstruction high-resolution retinal scanning technology, infrared and autofluorescence photography, pattern electroretinography, visually evoked potential, high-density macular microperimetry, kinetic video ultrasonography, optical coherence tomography angiography, and video fluorescein and indocyanine green retinal angiography.
  • Therapeutics: medical (non-procedural) interventions, low duty cycle micropulse diode-yellow laser technology, diode green laser technology, photodynamic laser therapy, cutting edge injectable medicines, and micro-surgical intervention.
    Using these methods, we are able to diagnose and treat retinal disorders across the spectrum.
