Diabetic Eye Disease
Diabetics: Protect your eyesight with leading-edge care from true experts.
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of adult blindness, and a large percentage of diabetics develop it — even when blood-glucose levels are controlled. If you have diabetes, you are at risk. Protect your vision with state-of-the-art care from the region’s leaders in eye problems affecting diabetics.
Safeguard your “fine vision” from age-related vision loss.
The macula is the portion of the retina responsible for the central and “fine” vision essential for reading, driving and other important tasks. Macular degeneration is when this vision begins to degrade, and it’s the leading cause of blindness in adults over age 55. We fight to preserve your eyesight with advanced, experienced specialty retina care.
Retinal Holes, Tears and Detachment
Don’t take chances! Trust specialty expertise and 24/7 availability.
Trauma, eye disease and the process of aging can cause changes in the eye that could lead to the formation of tiny holes or tears in the retina, which can become detached as a result. These are serious problems — medical emergencies — that can occur at any time. That’s why our retina specialists offer the most advanced treatments… and are available 24/7 to help you!
