Retinal Health Information
Central serous chorioretinopathy, commonly referred to as CSC, is a condition in which fluid accumulates under the retina, causing a serous (fluid-filled) detachment and vision loss.
Diabetic retinopathy (pronounced ret in OP uh thee) is a complication of diabetes that causes damage to the blood vessels of the retina — the light-sensitive tissue that lines the back part of the eye, allowing you to see fine detail.
The retina lines the back wall of the eye, and is responsible for absorbing the light that enters the eye and converting it into an electrical signal that is sent to the brain via the optic nerve, allowing you to see.
(ERMs), also commonly known as cellophane maculopathy or macular puckers, are avascular (having few or no blood vessels), semitranslucent, fibrocellular membranes that form on the inner surface of the retina.
The retina is the inner lining of the eye; it is the thin, light-sensitive tissue that generates vision. Tears can form in the retina, creating a risk of retinal detachment and severe loss of vision.
Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD) is a natural change that occurs during adulthood, when the vitreous gel that fills the eye separates from the retina, the light-sensing nerve layer at the back of the eye.
"We are blessed at SDRA to have a complement of very talented and caring staff members who assist us at every step of the way from the front desk to the back office and in the clinic. Our clinic staff are an extension of ourselves and are integral in providing individualized care for each patient - with comprehensive history taking, performing state-of-the-art diagnostic testing, assisting in both documenting all aspects of the professional interaction as well as with our in-office procedures. We embrace the team concept wholeheartedly since it makes us who we are and allows us to offer top notch medical care for our patients ”
"Having grown up in a household where my father practiced as a family physician, I learned first-hand the true value of a sincere and caring doctor-patient relationship. It still informs my day to day interactions with patients, and in that regard, I wear two hats – one the GP hat, listening and then trying to make sure I address our patients’ specific needs, while at the same time providing them with the technical expertise both diagnostically and therapeutically that they deserve”
"As retina physicians we have the privilege along with great responsibility of optimizing vision which has often times been compromised by very consequential retinal disorders. My approach to patient care is multifaceted and consists of empowering patients with knowledge and understanding of their retinal disease as well as addressing concerns of how their eye sight affects their daily life and individual needs. I find that compassion and truly caring for our patients is what sets the standard of patient care one receives at SDRA”
"Retinal conditions can be complex and their effects can be distressing. That is why my approach is to ensure that every patient has a clear understanding of their retinal condition and offer the best and latest treatment options. By listening and working with each patient, I aim to address their individual needs and customize therapy to provide the best care for the patient as a whole. I am proud to be a member of the SDRA team that is dedicated to providing professional, compassionate, and innovative care."
