I am a retina specialist (ophthalmologist) practicing in Fairfax, Virginia, just about 20 minutes from Washington D.C. As a board certified ophthalmologist, I completed additional training to allow me to sub-specialize in problems of the retina and vitreous. As a "retina specialist," most of my practice is limited to diseases and surgery of the retina and vitreous. Most patients see me upon referral from another eye doctor as not all patients require the attention of a retina specialist.
Over the past few years, I have preferred to practice in association with other doctors in an ophthalmic multi-specialty setting. By having doctors who provide a variety of specialty eye care, we are better able to provide comprehensive care to our patients at the same location.
I started this website for educational purposes to teach those with questions about eye diseases such as;
- Macular Degeneration
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Retinal Detachment
- Retinal Tears
- Flashes and Floaters
- Epiretinal Membranes
- Macular Holes
- Complications from Cataract Surgery
- Retinal Vascular Occlusions
- Intra-vitreal Injections
For educational purposes, we will be expanding the subject matter to include information about many other eye diseases other than just those related to the retina.
As I have created this website, I have realized the importance of engaging patients online. A continuum can exist between the digital world and the clinical office. I have found that patients who learn more about their health from their own doctor's publications, have a better experience, especially if the provider is accessible outside of the office. In other words, I have found tremendous value in my patients learning from me on this website and carrying that knowledge to the office and vice versa.
Simply put, if more doctors were willing to create pages such as mine, the quality of health information available on the Internet would be greatly improved!
