Dr. Antoszyk was also involved in developing an Angiogenesis Foundation white paper on Improving Long-Term Patient Outcomes for Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
Dr. Antoszyk and Dr. Omar Punjabi co-authored a paper about a rare case of a maggot that had found its way into the eye, and was swimming under the retina. Dr.
Antoszyk immediately lasered and killed it in the office and the patient's
eyesight was restored. Dr. Punjabi presented the case at the 2018 American
Society of Retina Specialists meeting. It was described as one
of the best cases of the year. The paper, "'Pacman' Invasion of the Retina," was published in Retina Today, November/December 2018.
