Retina/Vitreous

Retina/Vitreous diseases are often sight-threatening. Our doctors use the latest technology to diagnose and treat patients of all ages, from newborns to seniors.

Retina/Vitreous problems can stem from a number of sources. Diabetes can cause retinopathy, while age-related macular degeneration and macular holes arise as we age. Retinal tears and detachment are often caused by injury or trauma to the eye or head and can cause flashes of light, floaters or a “curtain” over part of your vision.

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) tends to be hereditary and involves progressive retinal deterioration that can appear at any age while Retinopathy of Prematurity affects premature newborns who are placed on oxygen for long periods of time. Our eye surgeons use the latest technology including digital photography, ultrasound, and laser therapy to diagnosis and treat retinal and vitreous diseases to preserve our patients’ sight.
