What symptoms should alert me to see a Retinal Specialist?
The most common symptoms of retinal disease experienced by our patients include floaters and flashes, peripheral shadows, sudden loss of vision, or blurry/distorted vision.
Will my eyes be dilated on every visit? And for how long?
Yes. In order to best evaluate your eyes, your pupils must dilate so the doctor can see the retina. They will stay dilated and vision may be blurred for approximately 2 hours and longer for some patients.
Can I drive after my retinal eye checkup?
No. For your safety, it is better to arrange for someone to drive you home or take public transport.
How long will my visit take?
It will take approximately 45-minutes to 1 ½ hours for a complete eye examination and for any diagnostic tests that are needed.
What is the difference between a vitreo- retinal surgeon and a general ophthalmologist?
A general ophthalmologist is a specialist who performs general eye care including refraction and minor surgery as well as cataract surgery. A retina specialist or surgeon is highly trained in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of retinal problems such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, macular holes, macular puckers and retinal detachments. A retina specialist trains for many years beyond medical school: not only for four more years to become a general ophthalmologist, but for two additional years in a “fellowship” program to learn the details of retinal surgery.
