Frequently Asked Questions
Retina Disease Treatments
“Cryo” refers to freezing. Ocular Cryotherapy is the therapeutic use of cold temperatures to treat eye diseases.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Wet macular degeneration can now very often be halted and in some cases even be reversed to some degree with the help of drugs that are injected into the eye.
When the retina is torn or detached, surgery is almost always used as the primary treatment.
Diabetic Eye Disease
Diabetic eye disease compromises a group of eye conditions that affect people who have diabetes.
Epiretinal Membrane or Macular Pucker
The macula’s normal position is flat against the back of the eye. As we age, the vitreous gel in the middle of our eyes begins to shrink— creating a pull on the macula.
Intravitreal injections are the most common ophthalmic procedure performed in the United States. The medicine is injected into the vitreous, which is the gel-like fluid in the eye (near the retina).
Laser treatment is often referred to as “welding” of the eye. The light energy creates a microscopic spot to destroy lesions or “weld” tissues back together.
A macular hole occurs when the nerve cells of the macula become separated from each other and pull away the eye wall, forming a hole.
The vitreous is commonly associated with various eye diseases which can make it difficult for light to properly reach the retina.
Photodynamic therapy is a treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration.
