At The Retina Group of Washington we perform retina surgery Clinton in a professional, exemplary atmosphere. Many patients come through our doors seeking help with their retinal care. Retinal problems are not uncommon; however, they require professional care, which is our specialty. Call today for more information on how we can help you have the best eye and retinal care.
Some of the surgeries we perform at our retina surgery Clinton office are for problems such as retinal detachment. Retinal detachment can cause permanent vision loss if it is not treated in time. Because the retina detaches from its normal position and the macula detaches, central vision may be lost. Treatment for this kind of retinal problem at our offices is usually done with laser photocoagulation and cryopexy, which freezes the area around the retinal tear to seal it. For your first visit, we will have you fill out forms, which can also be found on our website. Arriving 15 minutes before your first appointment will give us the time we need to make sure that everything is together. Our staff is friendly and helpful, and our offices have an old fashioned feel that helps patients to feel welcomed and relaxed.
The Retina Group of Washington has been conducting clinical research trials on retina surgery Clinton and other types of retinal disorders since our opening, more than 30 years ago. We do this to advance our understanding of retinal disease and to always be on top of the latest in research, technology and science behind eye disease. We have a team of researchers who have participated in many different clinical trials, from age-related macular degeneration studies, to studies on diabetic retinopathy. Because of our efforts, many treatments are now FDA approved and available to patients. We conduct these trials in both our Chevy Chase, MD and Fairfax, VA offices.
