The Eye

Get to know the parts.

Dilating Drops

Dilation is necessary to properly visualize the retina on exam.

Wet Macular Degeneration

10 to 15% of macular degeneration cases manifest the wet form.

Macular Edema

Simply put, macular edema is swelling in the retina.

Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy

Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy is the most severe form and what we fight to prevent in all diabetics. If developed, it is treatable.

Laser for Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy

Just one of dozens of different lasers used in eye care. Not to be confused with LASIK.

Vitrectomy for Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy

Vitrectomy is the most common type of operating room retinal micro-surgery. And diabetes is just one of the many disorders for which it may be performed.

Macular Pucker

Macular Pucker is formally called Epiretinal Membrane (ERM), and informally is also called Cellophane Maculopathy.

Laser for Retinal Tear

This is a commonly performed office procedure to prevent progression to retinal detachment.

Pneumatic Retinopexy for Retinal Detachment

An air bubble is injected into the eye to support the tear and detached retina.  

Vitrectomy for Retinal Detachment

Vitrectomy is operating room micro-surgery used in this case to drain subretinal fluid, flatten, then laser-weld the retina.

Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion

Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion (BRVO) is a common retinal stroke.  It is largely treatable.

Central Retinal Vein Occlusion

Central Retinal Vein Occlusion (CRVO) is a more severe form of retinal stroke.  Depending on the subtype, patients can still enjoy a reasonable prognosis.

Vitrectomy for Macular Hole

A macular hole is a defect at the absolute most important central area of the retina. Vitrectomy with micro-surgical membrane peel is the main treatment.
