Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in the United States.

Central Serous Retinopathy

Central serous retinopathy (CSR) is caused by leakage of fluid beneath the retina. This bubble or blister of fluid beneath the macula can cause a central scotoma, minification, and blurred vision.

Cystoid Macular Edema

Cystoid macular edema (CME) is caused by leakage of fluid into the retina. Cysts form from the leakage in the center of the retina, which can be seen best with fluorescein angiography (FA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT).

Diabetic Macular Edema

One of the most frequent causes of vision impairment in the United States and throughout the rest of the world is diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that causes damage to the blood vessels of the retina.

Epiretinal Membrane and Macular Pucker

The macula is the area of the retina that provides the best vision for reading and fine detail. Scar tissue can sometimes form on the surface of the macula creating distortion and blurry vision.

Eye Drop Instillation Aids

Putting eye drops in can be a challenging task. It is best performed with both hands – one to steady and hold open the eyelids, and the other to instill the drop, all while tilting the head back. These movements can be difficult for those with neck problems or arthritis. Not everyone has the coordination, strength, and dexterity to accomplish this, and some people will require assistance from a spouse or family member. Lying down and instilling drops can be much easier, too.

Flashes and Floaters

Floaters and flashes are caused by the vitreous gel that fills the eye and lies against the retina.

Laser Trabeculoplasty

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a laser treatment that is used to lower the intraocular pressure of the eye. Laser energy is delivered to the drainage tissue of the eye (called the trabecular meshwork). This leads to increased drainage of fluid from the eye and a lowering of the eye pressure. The full effects of the laser treatment may not be apparent until 1-2 months after the laser treatment.

Macular Hole

The macula is the area of the retina that provides the best vision (reading and fine detail). A hole in the macula can develop either from vitreo-macular traction (“idiopathic” macular hole), trauma and rarely in near sighted people.

A Newer Technique for Imaging Your Retina- Ultra-wide Field Retinal Photography and Angiography

The retina is the part of the eye that sends light and visual signals to the brain for processing.

Ocular Tumors

Ocular tumors are tumors inside the eye. They are collections of cells that grow and multiply abnormally and form masses.

The Retina

The retina is a light-sensitive layer in the back of the eye that contains highly evolved cells called rods and cones. The retina converts incident light energy into signals that are carried to the brain by the optic nerve. The retina is divided into two areas: the central (macula) and the peripheral retina.

Retinal Tears and Detachments

There are many different kinds of retinal detachment disorders. The most serious retinal problems requiring surgery are caused by difficulties with the vitreous (a gel-like substance) that is attached to the retina.

Retinal Vein Occlusion

Central retinal vein occlusion is closure of the final retinal vein (located at the optic nerve).

Vitrectomy Surgery

Vitrectomy is a type of eye surgery that treats disorders of the retina and vitreous. The vitreous is removed and replaced by a saltwater solution.
