Gulf South residents of Louisiana and Mississippi suffer high numbers of diabetic retinopathy, macular edema, hypertensive retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusions, macular holes, epiretinal membranes (macular pucker or cellophane maculopathy), and retinal detachments. With a strong ethic of Patient-centered care, THE RETINA INSTITUTE has become the Premier New Orleans Medical and Micro-Surgical Retinal Eye Care Center.
You will benefit from our inclusive approach to retinal eye care which addresses both retinal and systemic (full body) illness and risks. We have successfully treated thousands of patients from New Orleans and across the nation.
The Argus II, an artificial retinal prosthesis has helped some regain minimal vision with the use of large external equipment. Artificial photoreceptors may not require this external component. Both modalities offer extremely limited visual improvement.
