Original black background Amsler Grid is more effective for patients with 20/50 to 20/200 visual acuity (worse vision).
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.
Many academic eye centers are not able to offer the full array of technologies available at THE RETINA INSTITUTE. In fact, we are proud to have introduced OCT Angiography to the entire state of Louisiana!
You will benefit from Dr. Ebrahim's 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.
Dr. Ebrahim has long believed that a breakthrough will allow our native organic retinal cells to be rescued from degenerative disorders such as macular degeneration. Now research is showing that this is possible.
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.
