Original black background Amsler Grid is more effective for patients with 20/50 to 20/200 visual acuity (worse vision).
THE RETINA INSTITUTE offers Patients expert care and a comprehensive array of technologies that rivals many academic centers. In fact, we are proud to have introduced OCT Angiography to the entire state of Louisiana. The field of Retina is leading medicine in the development of genetic and stem cell therapies, which are likely to be available for macular degeneration and inherited retinal disorders within 5 years.
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 Gulf South.
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.
Future breakthroughs likely will allow our native organic retinal cells to be rescued from degenerative disorders such as macular degeneration. Research is showing this to be possible. The field of Retina is leading medicine in the development of genetic and stem cell therapies, which may be available for macular degeneration and inherited retinal disorders within 5 years.
Visible on exam and fine imaging technologies are signs that correlate with and may even predict your cardiovascular risk. Scientists are applying artificial intelligence to retinal imaging to discover and reduce these risks.
