We approach your potential treatments conservatively, carefully weighing benefit against risk within your comfort level. Treatments from improved risk control, to topical use of drops, to various laser techniques, to office injections, to operating room microsurgery may be suggested as appropriate. We frequently recommend slowly escalating treatments, such that less invasive measures are employed first, for your safety.
Our impressive diagnostic and therapeutic resources include:
Using these methods, we are able to diagnose and treat retinal disorders across the spectrum. Our diagnostics include subclinical detection of decline, to protect you before major vision loss manifests.
THE RETINA INSTITUTE offers Patients expert care and a comprehensive array of technologies. 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.

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.
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.
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.
Visible on exam and advanced 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.
