Diagnostic Testing

Fluorescein Angiography

This procedure is a photographic study of the retinal blood vessels. Dye injected into a vein in your arm travels to blood vessels in the eye, and then we use a special camera to photograph those vessels.

Indocyanine Green Angiography (ICG)

Similar to Fluorescein Angiography, this procedure can give more information about certain diseases.

Fundus Photography

This test uses color photography and a microscope to reveal and document retinal disease.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

This imaging procedure provides cross sectional images of the retina layer and is used in the diagnosis of retinal diseases.


This technique produces images of the inner structures of the eye by using sound waves.


Repair and Reconstruction of Ocular Injuries

Numerous surgical procedures can repair injuries to the eye and preserve vision, even in cases of severe eye trauma.

Intravitreal Injections

These office-based procedures provide treatment for macular degeneration and other vascular abnormalities of the eye.

Laser Photocoagulation

A laser is a highly focused beam of light that is absorbed by tissue; laser photocoagulation is used in many delicate forms of surgery.

Photodynamic Therapy/Ocular Photodynamic Therapy

This advanced treatment for macular degeneration and other macular diseases uses a laser and laser-activated medication.


This microscopic technique repairs the interior of the eye.

Retinal Detachment Repair

This repair reattaches the retina to its normal position within the eye.

Macular Hole Repair

This vitrectomy procedure repairs a common vision threatening condition.
