When it comes to your eyes, you want to be confident that you’re getting the best possible care from a specialist. But what not everyone realizes is that even among eye specialists, we are unique. That’s because our expertise is in the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of just one part of the eye: the retina. Our practice is staffed with medical doctors and surgeons who have the skills and experience to give you confidence in the outcomes provided here at The Retina Group of Washington.
The more you know about the retina, where it’s located in relation to the rest of your eye, and what its purpose is, the more you appreciate what our ophthalmologist in Silver Springs has to offer you. The retina is at the back of your eye. When your cornea takes in light, it sends that light to your retina, where an image is formed. Simply put, excellent vision, or even vision at all, is difficult to impossible without the retina functioning properly. Our ophthalmologist in Silver Springs addresses diseases like age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, as well as conditions like retinal detachment, retinal vein occlusions, and macular holes. Using the cutting edge of diagnostics and the benefit of our involvement in research regarding retinal care, you can depend on treatments that are effective and safe. Among them are medicinal (Avastin, Lucentis, and Eylea) and surgical (cryotherapy, laser photogoagulation). We also offer steroid injections and Ozurdex implants. For surgery, we work out of some of the most prominent hospitals and ambulatory centers to assure you of outstanding care.
Don’t take unnecessary chances with your vision or your eye health. Get the best care available. Simply reach out to our office and allow us to schedule an appointment for you with our ophthalmologist in Silver Springs.
