Welcome

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:

  • 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 microsurgical intervention.

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.

Your Vision: Nothing Matters More

Your Eye Care Needs, Medical and Surgical

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.

Innovative Technology for Diagnosis and Treatment of Retinal Disease

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!

Retinal Eye Care Research

Artificial Photoreceptors Could Save the Sight of Millions

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. 

Host Cell Rescue: The Future of Retinal Recovery

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.


Your Retina Can Predict Cardiovascular Risk

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.
