your information source for all things retina!


You will find information on various retinal diseases here.  You may also download patient forms, view a patient information packet, as well as leave comments of a general nature.  Please consider leaving comments on the blog page.

You can review some of the handouts we provide to our patients as well as some of the specific sites that may be recommended to obtain more information. 

Many of my patients have suggested that I post videos of various surgeries that I perform.  With some trepidation, I have just posted a video of scleral buckling surgery -  this is a video that I have used in the past for teaching other surgeons this method of performing surgery.  You may find other material of interest as well on this site.

Please remember that this site is for general information only.  Specifically, no doctor-patient relationship can be established due to information found on this site or due to comments and replies on this site.  Additionally, specific recommendations that would pertain to your care may well be different than posted - again, this site is general in nature, and each patient, especially with respect to retinal disease, is unique!
